Turkey + Syria Earthquakes Response
Over 20,000 people have died in the devasting series of Earthquakes that hit Turkey and Syria the morning of Monday, February 6, 2023.
Thousands have lost their homes and are sleeping on the streets, in tents, or in vehicles. Thousands of buildings have collapsed and others are not safe to enter. The affected region is so widespread that more teams and resources are needed to reach them all.
Food supplies and blankets are in very short supply. Looting has left stores empty and people concerned about how they will feed their families. Many are still waiting for rescue under the rubble of collapsed buildings. Plus, falling temperatures are creating a dangerous and potentially hypothermic environment for those who have nowhere to go.
Foursquare Turkey has moved quickly and decisively to mobilize relief efforts from several directions including getting mobile hygiene trucks, a mobile bakery, and a meal distribution truck to several areas. Foursquare Disaster Relief and Foursquare Missions International are actively coordinating efforts with local leaders to provide additional food, clothing, and medical support.
