LetÔÇÖs help the victims of the catastrophic earthquake in Turkey and Syria!

A powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake devastated southern Turkey and northern Syria. The tremors were also felt in neighboring countries. In total, over 52,000 people lost their lives and 1.5 million people were left homeless. Currently, up to 26 million people may be affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

The Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) immediately began to provide support on the spot to people who suffered as a result of the cataclysm.

PAHÔÇÖs Emergency Response Team reached the most severely affected region on the third day after the disaster. We started with the distribution of packages with hygiene products, water and blankets in Gaziantep. We also delivered hot meals to Gaziantep and a mountain village near the city. In the following days, we provided mattresses for people staying in temporary shelters and tents in Gaziantep, Nurdagi, Nizip and other locations. At the same time, we delivered basic hygiene items, underwear, sanitary napkins and diapers (including in the city of Sanliurfa, which was heavily affected by the earthquake).

In Syria, we decided to support mobile canteens that provide hot meals to people in need. We also delivered thermal underwear, fleece clothing for children, sanitary napkins, nappies and wet wipes on site. We are also preparing to provide temporary ÔÇô but more durable than tents ÔÇô shelters for residents unable to return to their homes. We operate, among others, in Afrin and Jindayris.

To deliver aid we cooperate with local partners, the International Humanitarian Relief (IHR) and the Orange Foundation, which run operations in Turkey and Syria.

At present, the most urgent need is still to provide warm and safe shelter, as many houses are still at risk of collapsing and aftershocks occur, as well as to secure access to food and hygiene products. Already on February 6, we launched collections of donations on and the portal, which allowed us to raise the funds necessary to finance first aid for the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

We are carrying on our work on site. We encourage you to continue supporting and showing solidarity with those affected by the earthquake in both countries.

Payments can also be made by traditional transfer (PAH account numbers at Alior Bank S.A. below) with the annotation ÔÇťAid for victims of the earthquake in Turkey/SyriaÔÇŁ.
