The February 6, 2023 earthquakes in Turkiye & Syria have caused catastrophic & devastating damage. More than 11,000 have been killed across both countries, while the death toll continues to rise as rescuers continue their operations. Over 35,000 have been injured, & the damage at the health facility level has severely impacted the provision of emergency medical attention. Freezing temperatures & snow on the ground have further exacerbated both rescue operations & living conditions for survivors.


Project HOPE's immediate emergency response will include: Search & rescue efforts, including the support of first responders Increasing access to emergency & primary health care in conjunction with existing health facilities, local partners, and Project HOPE's Emergency Medical Teams Procurement & shipping of pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, medical devices & equipment Provision of clean water, hygiene kits, infant kits, and dignity kits Provision of non-food items, blankets & tents

Long-Term Impact

Project HOPE is also planning an intermediate and long-term response plan, including the following: Rehabilitation of water supply systems at the primary, secondary, and tertiary health facility level; Mental health support for first responders, health staff, and civilians; Health interventions through community health agents focused on WASH, health, and mental health.
