Two powerful earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria on Feb. 6, killing more than 50,000 people and injuring thousands more. Millions of survivors urgently need help. Your donation to the Turkey and Syria Earthquake Relief Fund will provide emergency relief and fuel long-term recovery efforts in Turkey and Syria.
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.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
