Millions of people, including refugees, asylum-seekers, and internally displaced families, need humanitarian aid in southern Turkey and northern Syria after the world's deadliest seismic event in more than a decade. Thousands of aftershocks followed the earthquakes, adding to the destruction, trauma, and risk for survivors. Your donation to this fund will help meet their emergency needs, and power the efforts of local nonprofits that can close gaps in response and lead long-term recovery.
All donations to this fund will support Turkey and Syria earthquake relief and recovery efforts. Initially, the fund helped meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. Now, the fund is focusing on recovery efforts led by local, vetted organizations in the impacted areas to restore damaged homes, rebuild infrastructure, and more.
