Summary

On July 28 and 29 more than 60 fires started in 21 cities in Turkey. As of July 30th, 14 of these fires (in Adana, Osmaniye, Mersin, Antalya, Mugla, Kayseri, and Manisa) are still not under control. The massive fires have been spreading due to high temperatures and winds. The fires are unprecedented in scope and impact. All donations to this fund will support wildfire relief and recovery efforts in Turkey.

Challenge

People in Turkey battle wildfires on an ongoing basis. Small fires have been burning across the country throughout the summer. The recent start of large fires in highly populated areas at the same time has tightened the resources to respond. Strong winds have caused the fires to spread quickly, prompting mass evacuations in many areas. TPF's partners at Afet Platformu are closely following the developments and getting ready to respond to survivors' immediate needs.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support wildfire relief and recovery efforts in Turkey. We monitor the impact on affected communities and work with partners at Afet Platformu to allocate funds to where they're needed most. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted partner organizations in the impacted area(s).

Long-Term Impact

As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted partner organizations in the impacted area(s).
