Months after the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, many families are still struggling to rebuild their lives. Our teams have been working tirelessly on the ground to continue provide aid to those who lost everything. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we’ve been able to provide shelter, hygiene, and education to those in need.

Shelter for 3,500 Families

One of the most urgent needs after the earthquakes was providing shelter for those who have lost their homes. Alongside local partners, Samaritan’s Purse has been able to provide thousands of families with shelter tents, which serve as a safe place to stay warm and dry. These tents are also equipped with hygiene kits filled with essential supplies that families lost in the quakes.

Providing Shelter for 3,500 Families

Mobile Hygiene Centres

The earthquakes have left many people without proper bathrooms and no place to shower. Samaritan’s Purse has been setting up mobile hygiene containers in affected communities, so families can have access to safe restrooms and shower areas as they continue to recover. This has been a critical component of their relief efforts, as access to hygiene is essential for preventing the spread of disease.

Primary School for 250 Students

Education is another area where Samaritan’s Purse has been providing relief. In the Hatay region, our teams recently assembled a large Samaritan’s Purse tent, which is now being used as a primary school classroom for 250 children. This is an incredible achievement, as providing education to children affected by disasters is essential to help them move forward and rebuild their lives.

Continuing Efforts to Provide Aid

Despite the progress made, there is still much work to be done. Samaritan’s Purse remains committed to providing ongoing relief to those affected by the earthquake. The support you provide not only enables the immediate needs of affected families but also helping to lay the groundwork for long-term recovery and development.
