On February 6, 2023, at 04:17, Turkey woke up to a dark day. One of the deadliest in the country's history, two earthquakes of magnitudes 7.8 and 7.5 hit central Turkey, affecting nearby countries and many cities where some 15 million people live.

The toll of the earthquake, which heavily affected the region where it occurred, especially Hatay, Maraş, Antep, Diyarbakır, Malatya, Osmaniye, Adana, Adıyaman and Urfa, is in the order of thousands and still rising.

Snowy winter exacerbates the humanitarian disaster, as many affected regions are yet unattended by rescue teams. Turkey declared a Level-4 emergency alert that includes a general call for international support. According to the initial reports from the region, many people either lost their lives or are still under the rubble, and it left thousands homeless in cold weather or cannot enter their homes. Despite the incremental weather, search and rescue teams continue their work in the region. Concern grows deeper that the weight of the destruction is more serious than we can currently see.

From the very first moment of the earthquake, many local aid and support organizations have been mobilized and are trying to reach to help the earthquake victims as conditions allow. There is an urgent need for immediate actions and resources such as food, winter clothing and shelter support.

Research Institute on Turkey calls for the international community to provide immediate support for recovery efforts by raising funds to be transferred transparently to The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies as well as other active and respected non-governmental organizations in Turkey, which are working in the affected region, mobilize local and international support.
