100 days on from the devastating day the first earthquakes hit Türkiye (formally known as Turkey) and Syria, we cannot forget about those impacted.
56,737 people have lost their lives, and more than 138,000 have been injured. In total, around 17.9 million people have been impacted, including at least 6.2 million children.
Children like Ward*, age 6, pictured above. Fast asleep when the earthquake struck, he was hit on the head and buried under rubble as his home collapsed. His father managed to rescue him, but two of Ward’s siblings were killed.
If losing family members, neighbours, friends, their home, and their schools wasn’t enough, flooding in March caused further devastation to children still reeling from the effects of the earthquakes and its aftershocks in Türkiye and Syria.
Right now, children like Ward and their families are in desperate need of support to piece their lives back together. By donating to our Children’s Emergency Fund, you can help protect children’s lives and futures at this devastating time.
