Over 20,000 people in Turkiye and Syria have been killed following two devastating earthquakes, reducing houses and buildings to rubble. The death toll is expected to climb as rescue operations continue.
The first earthquake struck Gaziantep, a Turkish city, 150 miles away from the Turkey-Syria border. Twelve hours later, a second earthquake hit the Elbistan district in Turkey’s Kahramanmaras province. Tremors have been felt as far as away as Cyprus, Lebanon, and Israel.
As families are grappling with this disaster, they need immediate assistance. With heavy snowfall reported in many regions, Muslim Hands teams in Turkey are in a race against time to provide emergency shelter, water, food, and medical supplies to those affected.
