Tens of thousands of people have lost their lives and many more injured in a devastating 7.7 magnitude earthquake that struck Türkiye (formerly known as Turkey), Syria and other areas in the region, leaving thousands homeless during a bitter winter period.
Our teams are already responding through our local partners with urgent lifesaving assistance in both Türkiye and Syria. Thousands of buildings have completely collapsed, including children’s homes, hospitals, schools and government buildings.
Alongside other key responders, we’re now in a race against time to protect children and their families from facing a secondary humanitarian disaster, as a result of rising hunger, disease outbreaks and impact on public services.
DONATE NOW TO SAVE LIVES!
Our Children's Emergency Fund allows us to respond wherever the need is greatest. It helps us to reach children quickly with the essentials they need to survive.
