2023 Turkey–Syria Earthquake

Tens of thousands of people were killed and more injured when a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck southeastern Turkey, near the town of Gaziantep, in early February 2023. The Cross Regions Disaster Relief Fund will focus on humanitarian relief efforts in Turkey for as long as needed.

After Ergisi travelled to the site and met with officials the first efforts will concentrate on education. The Fund has provided nearly 2,000 backpacks with supplies and is making plans to construct a school.
