Responding to the earthquakes in Syria

In February 2023, multiple earthquakes and aftershocks hit Turkey and Syria,
killing, injuring, and displacing thousands of people in the middle of a winter storm.
The earthquakes came on top of a cholera outbreak and a severe
economic and humanitarian crisis caused by nearly 12 years of devastating war.

For three months after the earthquakes struck, we have helped our Syrian partner churches
provide urgent food, hygiene, and winter assistance
to around 9,400 displaced and crisis-affected households.
Thanks to the generous support we received, we are now able to continue helping more than 1,400 families with food baskets, hygiene kits, and winter assistance.
