In the early morning hours of February 6, two earthquakes rocked a 100-kilometre stretch of the fault line near the Türkiye-Syria border. The first quake measured a 7.8 magnitude and the second was 7.5. Because it was early morning, many residents were sleeping and weren't able to flee before their homes collapsed from the powerful quakes.  Many of those who survived the worst of the earthquake no longer have shelter since their homes are unsafe due to earthquake damage. Shelter, food, water, and winter weather needs are at the top of the list of immediate needs. Much of the infrastructure has been destroyed, so rebuilding will be a significant need in the near future.  You can donate to this need through the FAIR (Fellowship Aid and International Relief) Türkiye-Syria Earthquake Relief Emergency Appeal.
