Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has struck Turkey (Türkiye) and Syria causing widespread damage and devastation. Buildings collapsed as families slept, leaving hundreds dead and thousands more injured.

Children are injured, in shock and traumatised. They need urgent help.

Right now, children are in desperate need of your help and support. They have lost their homes, their schools and even their families, but they cannot lose their future.

Help us send life-saving supplies to children and their families in Turkey & Syria.

Your Donation Saves Children’s Lives

Right now, UNICEF teams are working around the clock to provide children and their families with emergency supplies.

We are working under challenging conditions, with harsh weather and damaged infrastructure exacerbating the situation.

However, we are determined to reach every child in need and we won’t stop until every child is helped.

A donation to UNICEF today can make a life-saving difference to children:

  • €250 can supply 5 first-aid kids, to help injured children.
  • €100 could provide emergency food and clean water for 100 children.
  • €75 can provide 8 winter blankets to keep children safe and warm.
