Türkiye and Syria earthquakes
Syria Emergency Appeal
A magnitude 7.8 earthquake has struck Southern Turkey and Northwestern Syria on 6 February early morning while the second quake of magnitude 7.6 hit again at noon. No such strong earthquake has ever happened for the past century and death toll by “doublet earthquake” is estimated to rise 20,000, according to the World Health Organization. The situation is worrying. Children and their families are in dire situations and they need us to lend an immediate helping hand.
In response to the crisis, Plan International is working closely with local partners to kick start the humanitarian programme. Emergency relief packs with hygiene kits, food, fuel, blankets and medicine will be distributed to the children and families; menstrual hygiene items will also be delievered to girls and women to further protect their safety and health.
The ongoing cholera outbreak, earthquake and winter cold only aggravate the situations.
Please take immediate action and save people’s lives.
