Two deadly earthquakes of 7.8 and 7.6 magnitude have struck Southern Turkey and Northern Syria. Tragically, over 50,000 people have been killed and the death toll is expected to rise dramatically. Buildings and residential blocks have been pulverised while people lay asleep.

The worst earthquake to hit Turkey in 80 years has caused widespread destruction in Turkey and Syria.
Eyewitness reports in Aleppo speak of mound of concrete, steel rods, and bundles of clothes lay where a muti storey building once stood.
The tremors were so strong that they were felt from as far away as Lebanon and Cyprus.
Seismologists have warned that Turkey and Syria can expect thousands of after shocks for weeks or months to come

Muslim Aid is on the ground in Southern Turkey and Northern Syria working with partners to coordinate an effective emergency response in the form of food, water, shelter, and cash assistance.
Sahedul Islam, Muslim Aid’s Programmes Partnerships Manager, coordinating our response said:
Huge earthquakes have destroyed buildings in Turkey and Syria as people lay asleep. The death toll will increase, and our life saving relief efforts will be hampered due to snow, rain, and freezing conditions. However, we are working around the clock to reach survivors and victims with your aid.
Urgent support is needed to help a nation already suffering from the devastating effects of war and poverty.
We are a faith-based British international charity that provides help to people who are victims of natural disasters or conflict or suffering from poverty, hunger, disease, homelessness, injustice, deprivation or lack of skills and economic opportunities.
