There is a power to making a difference - no matter the distance.
The earthquakes in Syria and Turkey exasperated an already dire situation, but thanks to your ongoing support, displaced families are putting their lives together once again. During the immediate response, NuDay helped families with critical items, food, and shelter. Now, we're moving on to phase two: sustainable aid to rebuild futures. Your donations are helping NuDay make a difference on the ground: from providing immediate aid to families, to helping kids go to school once again and rebuild their futures.
Thank you for your continued support, and for remembering Syrians. Together, we're making a difference.
Since the two largest earthquakes hit Turkey and Syria in beginning of February, the area has only seen more destruction and aftershocks. Last week, two more earthquakes stuck. 50,000 deaths have been confirmed in the region, with thousands more still missing.
Now, more than ever, humanitarian interventions are needed. Your support has gone towards distributing life-saving food baskets to vulnerable people affected by the earthquakes. These baskets are adapted to the realities on the ground and are filled with canned consumables and culturally sensitive ingredients to nourish families immediately. Bedding and sleeping bags have been distributed to counter the cold weather, as have winter kits (filled with gloves, hats, scarves).
We have more aid planned and need your support. Together, we can make a difference. One Person at a Time, One Humanity Closer.
As time passes, NuDay is continuing to evacuate those displaced by the earthquake, digging up rubble to reach any and all civilians. Our team is persisting: we know that the longer we wait, the more vulnerabilities persist.
Once we evacuate civilians, we transport them immediately to a waiting ambulance to provide them with oxygen on their way to our partner medical facilities, where doctors assess and treat patients. Facilities are overwhelmed with the number of patients in need, and NuDay is doing our best to keep them supplied with medical cots, bedding, medical equipment, and wound care items. We're also working to organize immediate aid shipments into Syria to resupply facilities.
Our teams have also been supporting emergency makeshift shelters, setting up facilities with bedding and mattresses to keep families safe. We are doing everything to respond efficiently.
Despite the situation, our team is working quickly and saving lives. We couldn't do this without your support. Your donations are securing fuel for transportation and evacuations, medical assistance, ensuring that we have supplies for emergency shelters, and that we can distribute humanitarian aid as needed.
Thank you - and help us keep the impact going. Because we're all working for a safe Syria.
