Six Months After the Earthquake
The Struggle in Turkey and Syria
The path to recovery is a long and arduous one. Many have been left with nothing, their homes and possessions reduced to rubble. The immediate needs for permanent shelters, food, clean water, and improved hygiene conditions remain critical. In the long term, many families face the prospect of living in temporary container settlements for the next two years.
Six months have passed since a series of devastating earthquakes struck Turkiye and Syria, claiming the lives of over 55,000 people and injuring more than 100,000. The immediate physical danger may have subsided, but the aftershocks continue to be felt by the 15 million people affected.
The emotional toll is equally heavy. The sight of debris serves as a constant reminder of the tragedy, and many are still haunted by the loss of loved ones, unable to find closure.
