“Devastating Earthquakes Cause Massive Casualties
The People of Türkiye need Your Help!
A 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Türkiye and Syria on February 6, and the numbers of casualties continue to rise. Rescue work has proven difficult due to the continue aftershocks in the disaster area, as well as the extremely low temperature, frequent snowstorms, and the rubble of collapsed buildings. Hundreds of thousands of disaster survivors lost their loved ones and homes, waiting in grief for medicine, food, water, warm clothing and other emergency supplies.
[UPDATE 09/02/2023] Amity immediately launched an emergency response after the disaster, and our staff have arrived in the disaster area to work with our local partners to deliver humanitarian relief to the affected.
