A series of massive earthquakes struck southern Turkey in the early morning hours of Feb. 6, 2023. We are deeply saddened to hear that these quakes have caused the widespread destruction and collapse of buildings, with thousands of deaths and many thousands more injuries in Turkey and northwestern Syria.
Unfortunately, the numbers are expected to rise, considering hundreds of thousands of people under rubble waiting to be rescued. The harsh winter weather conditions are making the situation harder for the victims. People are in urgent need of food, clothes, medical help, and shelter in these challenging times.
