[Global community] Earthquake in Syria and Turkey

EENET stands in solidarity with communities devastated by the earthquake in Syria and Turkey.

As the death toll rises beyond 21,000 with tens of thousands injured after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkey and Syria on 06 February 2023, EENET extends our deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the devastating earthquake in southern Turkey and northern Syria, and wish a speedy recovery to the injured, and safety and recovery for those affected.

Schools, hospitals and other medical and educational facilities have been damaged or destroyed by the quakes, further impacting children.

Children in Syria continue to face one of the most complex humanitarian situations in the world. A worsening economic crisis, continued localized hostilities after more than a decade of grinding conflict, mass displacement and devastated public infrastructure have left two-thirds of the population in need of assistance.

Our hearts and thoughts are with the children and families affected, especially those who have lost loved ones or who have been injured.
