Türkiye-Syria Earthquake: More than 51,000 people have been confirmed dead

According to latest reports, a combined total of more than 51,000 people have already been confirmed dead across both Türkiye and Syria, and is continuing to rise as bodies are recovered from the rubble.

In war-torn North West Syria, a lack of infrastructure due to more than a decade of protracted conflict has left the affected population even more vulnerable. Millions of internally displaced Syrians are living in camps, and those hit hard by the crisis are entirely reliant on international aid to assist with this emergency. Communications are almost completely down, and health facilities are understaffed and under-resourced. The situation on the ground is dire.

The worst earthquake to hit Syria in over a century

The earthquakes are the worst to hit the Turkish region in 19 years and in Syria, the worst in over a century.

Freezing temperatures, shortages in fuel and electricity due to damaged infrastructure, limited supplies due to strained supply chains and more are hampering the efforts of search and rescue teams on the ground. Approximately 380,000 people have taken refuge in government shelters, shopping malls, community centres and even their cars to protect them from the cold.

The scale of this disaster cannot yet be determined as the situation on the ground continues to evolve, what we do know is that it is a race against time to save lives

Join us for a reflective evening with Qari Essa Alenizy.
