#1 URGENT HELP NEEDED
“So many buildings crumbled and shattered. There are residents trapped in isolated places … so we are under the assumption that the number of people injured and deaths will rise with time.”
In the early hours of 6 Feb 2023, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck in Gaziantep, a province in Turkiye that's home to more than 2 million people. The quake and subsequent aftershocks were strong enough to reverberate into neighboring Syria and Lebanon, destroying buildings and killing many in their sleep.
The death toll has risen to more than 55,700, and thousands more have been left injured and stranded in the harsh winter cold. Rescue efforts are ongoing, but hampered by a blizzard that left roads covered in ice and snow. This is the worst earthquake to hit the region in a hundred years.
GER is working with our partners on the ground to supply emergency aid to the victims of this disaster. They urgently need winter clothes, blankets, hot meals, and temporary shelter as they recover and rebuild.
Donate now to provide life-saving food aid, baby milk formula, shelters and blankets to the communities affected by this catastrophe in Turkey, especially in their hour of need.
