Generous Australians like you have helped to provide almost 2 million children and adults with life-saving aid following the devastating earthquakes that struck northwest Syria and southeast Türkiye on 6 February 2023.
Within hours of the first tremor, our team was on the ground providing survivors with fuel and heaters for temporary shelters, blankets, hot meals and hygiene kits. In the months since, Australian donors have helped to provide clean water, cash for basic needs and healthcare, as well as educational materials, and mental health and social support for children.
One year on, however, children and families still need your help. Many remain in temporary shelters and at risk of illness and death amidst an ongoing health and nutrition emergency.
Nearly 1 million children and families have received clean water and sanitation.
54,000 children were supported to go back to school as quickly as possible.
6,000 familes have received heating supplies.
After receiving heating supplies through World Vision, this mother and her children in northwest Syria can stay warm inside their temporary shelter.
In northwest Syria, our local partner Takaful al Sham is distributing ready-to-eat meals and drinking water to families made homeless by the earthquake.
Hundreds of thousands of children living in tents and other temporary shelters urgently need food, clean water, healthcare and protection from abuse and exploitation.
Earthquake survivors in Syria and Türkiye are receiving cash and vouchers so they can buy food and other essentials
