Two devastating earthquakes struck south-eastern Turkey near the border with Syria on Monday 6 February 2023.
Thousands of people are dead and many are injured. Rescue workers are desperately searching for survivors in cities and towns across the area.
We are deeply concerned for all those affected in Turkey and Syria and for all those in our communities with loved ones in the region.
We recognise many will want to help and several Disaster Emergency Committee charities have launched appeals and are supporting the local response.
If you would like to help, we encourage you to donate to one of the DEC charities' appeals below:
- Action Against Hunger
- British Red Cross
- CARE International
- Christian Aid
- International Rescue Committee
- Islamic Relief
- Save the Children
- World Vision
