Affected families are still mourning the loss of their loved ones after the devastating earthquake that struck Türkiye and Syria earlier this year. Already vulnerable due to over 12 years of conflict and a worsening economic crisis, communities are struggling to recover.
Thanks to the support of our donors, NRC teams have been responding since day one providing displaced families with essentials like blankets, mattresses and clothing. We have improved the living conditions in emergency shelters by providing toilets, kitchen materials and access to clean water. NRC is continuing to support communities to recover by helping children get back to school, rehabilitating damaged water infrastructure (pictured) and supporting small businesses.
The massive earthquake that hit Syria and Türkiye on Monday 6 February is a disaster that will worsen the suffering of Syrians already struggling with a severe humanitarian crisis.
Thousands of buildings are estimated to have been damaged across Syria, affecting 8.8 million people according to UN figures.
In the first month following the devastating earthquake, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) assisted over 60,000 people with winter items, water supply, psychosocial support, hygiene kits, cash support among other forms of assistance.
Mental health support, urgent shelter as well as rehabilitation of destroyed buildings and infrastructure are needed to help Syrians recover from the aftermath of this disaster.
