Turkey Syria Earthquake Appeal

10 February 2023

Following the devastating earthquakes that have hit Turkey & NW Syria, Positive Action in Housing has launched a donations appeal amongst our members and wider support networks to contribute financially towards the wider relief effort to reach people affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

The death toll has passed 22,000. 17 million people are estimated to be affected. Survivors forced to flee their homes face freezing winter conditions. Infrastructure is decimated, so people will struggle to find safe shelter, water and food. They desperately need blankets, emergency shelter, food and clean water. Defying the odds, rescue workers find people alive in the rubble more than 100 hours after the earthquakes. Experts have warned the tremors could continue for weeks or even months, with survivors on Wednesday continuing to seek refuge from future quakes and the freezing temperatures in mosques, schools, bus shelters and homemade tents, often burning debris to stay alive.

Every donation raised from this appeal will go towards relief efforts on the ground. Any gift aid raised from this appeal will go to the Emergency Relief fund, which directly supports war refugees with crisis support.
