Turkey and Syria earthquake: how to help
Every minute counts in the desperate race to help people affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. And now another earthquake of 6.4 magnitude has struck Turkey. The church is rising up to respond – and you can make a difference right now.
More than 35,000 people have lost their lives. Whole towns have been flattened. Tens of thousands of people whose homes have been destroyed are now at the mercy of a freezing winter.
As part of the Disasters Emergency Committee – a group of humanitarian agencies – Tearfund has launched an emergency appeal. Our church partner in Syria is providing vital supplies such as warm clothing, nourishing food and hygiene essentials. But the need is vast – your support will make a crucial difference.
