Earthquake Humanitarian Aid

SOS Earthquake Syria and Türkiye

Southeastern Türkiye and northern Syria were hit 6. 2. 2023 by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, causing the death of more than fifty thousand people, over one hundred thousand injured and extensive material damage. The need for help is still high and People in Need continues to work in both countries.

This campaign is already closed. Thank you!
People in Need has been working in the area affected by the devastating earthquake for many years, we already have experienced humanitarian teams on the ground and hundreds of colleagues ready to start helping immediately,” said Šimon Pánek, Director of People in Need, shortly after the earthquake. He particularly emphasized humanitarian aid, temporary shelter solutions, and subsequent reconstruction. According to reports from the media and from the ground at the time, the extent of the damage was enormous. The situation was also complicated by heavy rains that led to widespread flooding.  

Today in Syria, specifically in the province of Idlib, our team operates in cooperation with local authorities to distribute hygiene kits, clothes, food and cash in the most affected areas. Two truckloads of essential items containing mattresses, sheets and blankets have also recently arrived from the Czech Republic.  

In Türkiye, our team works to distribute blankets, food, diapers, clothes, and other essential goods to the most vulnerable. 
All this work is made possible in large part thanks to the generous donations we’ve received via the SOS Earthquake Syria and Turkey.

I have some of my relatives under a collapsed building. We don't even know if they are alive. All help is appreciated regardless of its size. My heart and best wishes goes to everyone affected.
