Türkiye Syria earthquakes emergency

Türkiye and Syria have been rocked by two earthquakes. Thousands of casualties have been reported, with even more injured. Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders teams are providing urgent medical care.

The needs are very high in northwest Syria as the vulnerable population here are already struggling after many years of war in the region.

Our teams have donated blankets and essential life kits to the displaced populations here. The level of damage in the region has caused the destruction of hundreds of houses, leaving thousands homeless.

The massive consequences of this disaster will require an international aid effort.

We are working to rapidly scale up our medical and humanitarian response based on where we see the need is greatest. It will be challenging but with your support, we will continue with determination.

Unless otherwise specified, contributions to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are directed to our general emergency fund, which is what we draw upon to deliver lifesaving healthcare wherever it’s needed around the world. Such unrestricted general donations give us the ability to direct funds where the needs are greatest, including under-reported and neglected crises.
