On 6 February 2023, Turkey and Syria were shaken by several violent earthquakes. Tens of thousands of people are dead or injured, many are still missing. In Turkey, around 12 million people live in the areas affected by the earthquake, including two million Syrian refugees. The need for humanitarian aid is huge: the affected people need shelter, medical care, food and drinking water. Together with local partner organisations, we provide humanitarian aid and distribute, for example, emergency relief packages, tents, mattresses and nappies to affected families.
