Turkey Earthquake Appeal
A devastating 6.8 magnitude earthquake has rocked southern Turkey, killing 22 people, and injuring over 1,000.
£100 emergency kit - will help us to provide food, warm thermal blankets, hygiene kits, and waterproof protective sheeting to people affected by the earthquake.
Homes have been flattened and people have been trapped in rubble for hours as temperatures plummet, and snow and temperatures as low as -8 are forecast.
Please donate, and help our local team in Turkey to provide urgent support to survivors of this shocking tragedy.
The earthquake struck the city of Elazig in central-eastern Turkey at 5.55 p.m. local time – around 8.55 p.m. GMT – and was felt in neighbouring Syria, Lebanon and Iran. Over 200 aftershocks have already been felt across the region, and the number of people killed is, sadly, predicted to rise.
Human Appeal staff are currently en route through difficult roads to reach Elazig, in order to distribute food, winter blankets and hygiene kits, and to assess the damage and needs.
Our team is co ordinating with government services and local partners to ensure our urgent relief goes to those who are most in need.
Please help us support these communities in desperate need of aid. Your donation today can help us to reach those affected immediately with the essentials they need to survive.
