Urgent plea for help: Help the survivors of the Turkey earthquake. In the early hours of 6 February 2023, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria. This was followed by another 7.5 magnitude earthquake afterwards. Reports have put the death toll at more than 40 000 people with but it is expected that this number will rise and that there will be aftershocks. The scale of destruction is vast with millions displaced, sleeping on the floor in the snow. Survivors need urgent aid.
More than 40 000 people have been killed and more than 10 million people are left homeless after the devastating earthquake in Turkiye and Syria. Hundreds of multiple storey homes can be seen destroyed or flattened for kilometers with people still trapped underneath rubble. These families are without food, medical support, sources of warmth, clean drinking water as there is Cholera in the tap water and shelter in the freezing temperatures and snowy weather conditions.
