On Monday 6th February, two huge 7.8 and 7.5 magnitude earthquakes struck the regions of Southeast Turkey and Northwest Syria killing over 47,000 people and shattering the lives of millions. Now another 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck, affecting areas where the humanitarian situation was already catastrophic. The 4 million Syrian refugees who fled the conflict in Syria are displaced, yet again. They are cold and hungry, with nowhere to go.
We must not abandon Syrians in Turkey
The catastrophic situation for Syrian families is unprecedented as the ongoing tremors continue to terrify those who are already traumatised. We must remember that displaced Syrian families in Turkey have been battered and weakened by 12 years of brutal conflict. Many were reliant upon humanitarian aid for survival. Following the earthquakes, we must not turn away from Syrian refugees who are without even the basics needed to survive and are at risk of freezing and starving to death.
Why give through Human Appeal
We’ve been relieving the hardships of people in Syria since its civil war began in 2011. We coordinate our efforts through official agencies in Turkey and with the UN, and work with partners like UNICEF and Kizilay (Turkish Red Crescent). When you give through Human Appeal, your charity will reach Syrian earthquake survivors in Turkey. We’ve had a strong presence in the region since 2015. Last year alone we supported over 21,000 Syrian refugees with food, shelter, and medical care, and we currently sponsor hundreds of orphans in Turkey.
