Urgent – But one year on, children and families still need your help.

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.

How your donations have helped so far

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.

Thank you for helping nearly 2 million people
