    Devastation from earthquake

    Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

    Highly rated charities providing relief and recovery in the wake of the devastating earthquakes affecting Turkey and Syria.

    Two powerful earthquakes, taking the lives of over 20,000 people, struck south-eastern Turkey near the Syrian border on Monday, February 6, 2023. The first quake, with a 7.8 magnitude, was centered near the city of Gaziantep, and the second quake hours later, with a magnitude of 7.5, hit Turkey's Elbistan district of Kahramanmaras province. More than 40 aftershocks, including the one in Kahramanmaras, have occurred since the first quake.
