On Monday, February 6, 2023, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and aftershocks in Turkey (Türkiye) and Syria left over 20,000 people dead and many more missing and injured.
People in the region will need critical food and other supplies over the days and weeks ahead.
To aid the immediate response, The Global FoodBanking Network has created an Emergency Response Fund to support our trusted partner and member food bank in Turkey (Türkiye), the Tider Basic Needs Association (Tider).
Tider has a presence in the affected area and responded within hours to help with emergency assessments and response efforts. They are also a member of Afet Platformu, an association of 26 NGOs that is coordinating disaster response across the country.
We are depending on you to help us provide critical support to families in the region. Our partners will continue to provide support today and as communities recover.
