Help people affected by the earthquakes
It’s now several months since a series of devastating earthquakes struck southern Türkiye (Turkey) and Syria, and The Red Cross has been at the heart of the response to this disaster from the very beginning.
Every day in Türkiye (Turkey), around 1,000 staff and 1,500 volunteers continue to support those in need. So far they have:
• Provided 416 million hot meals
• Distributed more than 10 million relief items - including tents, blankets, heaters, and hygiene kits
• Supported over 600,000 vulnerable people with multi-purpose cash, and an additional 140,000 with cash vouchers.
In Syria, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent has reached more than 5.3 million people with relief assistance for their basic needs, such as food, clothing, hygiene products, medicines and much more. To date they have distributed over 3.2 million items including food, relief packages and medical items.
The impact of these earthquakes will be felt for years to come, and the road to recovery has only just started. We urgently need funds to support people now and in the longer term as they rebuild their lives.
