About the crisis
A deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake has devastated southeast Turkey and northern Syria, killing over 43,000 people and injuring thousands. Countless homes, buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed. Thousands of people continue to be unaccounted for. The number of casualties is expected to rise.
Turkey is the largest hub for refugees in the world, hosting more than 3.7 million Syrian refugees who are already vulnerable to brutal living conditions.
Areas of North West Syria have also been impacted, an area that continues to be affected by ongoing conflict and hosts more than 6.7 million Syrians who have been forced to flee their homes. The healthcare system in Syria was already on the brink of collapse with years of conflict. Now, the situation is deteriorating rapidly with the earthquake destroying hospitals and water sources.
