Devastating earthquakes have affected families in Türkiye and Syria—your urgent response is needed to save lives.
Two powerful earthquakes have struck in south-eastern Türkiye and northern Syria. Thousands of people are confirmed dead across Türkiye and Syria, with numbers expected to rise. Amongst those affected inside Syria are Syrians who are still displaced in their own country and living in flimsy shelters, tents and partially destroyed buildings. In Türkiye, the impact also includes thousands of refugees, and the communities that have been generously hosting them for nearly 12 years.
The earthquake has destroyed people’s homes and local infrastructure—families are in urgent need of relief items and shelter. Severe winter storms are sweeping through the region—families need urgent protection from icy winds, snow and rain.
UNHCR is on the ground with emergency items including tents, blankets and hygiene items.
Please donate now to provide emergency relief to those affected by this devastating earthquake
Never before in history have there been so many people forced to flee war, violence or persecution. More than 100 million men, women and children are desperately in need of a safer future. They are people just like you and me. UNHCR is helping them, but we cannot do this alone.
In order to continue to provide life-saving aid, we are in urgent need of more financial support. Lack of funding means that children are going without food, sick people are not receiving adequate care, and schools are not being built.
Your contribution to the work of UNHCR is needed more than ever.
Thanks to a monthly contribution, refugees receive our help

In a more efficient way: Long-term, predictable income allows UNHCR to do what it does best, and that’s saving lives, protecting fundamental rights and building better futures. It lowers administrative costs and allows us to spend less time and energy on raising funds.
