Please help provide life-saving support to survivors who have lost everything.
On 6 February, a catastrophic 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Türkiye and Syria. Thousands were injured and the death toll is in the tens of thousands. Thanks to the support of generous Kiwis, we were able to respond immediately delivering fuel to health facilities and search and rescue teams in Northwest Syria, as well as heaters and fuel to people seeking refuge in shelters.
The situation worsened after a magnitude 6.4 tremor struck southern Türkiye near the Syrian border two weeks after the first earthquake. This was another shocking blow for survivors who suffered through more than 6,000 aftershocks since the first deadly earthquake. From distributing clean water and hygiene kits to providing shelter and medical care, World Vision has helped more than 800,000 children and families in Türkiye and Syria thanks to our dedicated staff and supporters.
This earthquake will leave lasting scars and children and families will be impacted for many years to come. Please give now to support those in the wake of this devastating earthquake.
Your urgent donation will provide life-saving essentials like shelter, heating, water, child protection and medical care, and help families rebuild their lives.
Since the first earthquake struck on 6 February, local World Vision response teams have been assessing and responding to the needs of affected children in Türkiye and Syria. We've been distributing supplies to shelters, including tents, mattresses, tarpaulins, heaters, fuel and ready-to-eat food.
