Saving Children’s Lives

The recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have had a devastating impact on the lives of children and their families across the region.

Children asleep in their beds woke to their worlds crumbling around them.

Musa (6) was injured during the earthquake when a wall collapsed on him, leaving him hurt and forcing his family to seek refuge in a makeshift tent.

Injured and traumatised, Musa and his family received medical help, shelter, and life-saving aid within hours.

When disaster strikes UNICEF is able to provide immediate assistance to children, thanks to our preposition supplies and logistics network.
