#Ukraine: providing and receiving support

Earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria

Earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria support

The recent earthquakes in Turkey with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.5 had devastating effects in the surrounding areas in both Turkey and Syria, leaving many people injured or dead, and much more without homes and infrastructure. Ten cities in Turkey are affected by the earthquake. Many aftershocks are still being felt across the region. We empathise with all people affected and want to express our solidarity and support. 

Although Eurodoc is, unfortunately, in no position to organise direct help or support, we recognise the urgent need for humanitarian help, particularly during winter times. Anyone able and willing to provide financial support or other kinds of help is encouraged to reach out to one of the reliable and trustworthy associations collected by our colleagues at the Marie Curie Alumni Association together with their letter of support:

AHBAP — Anatolia People and Peace Platform;

AKUT — Search and Rescue Association;

AFAD — Disaster and Emergency Management

Finnish Red Cross - Disaster Relief Fund
