Earthquake in Syria and Turkey
First aid and medical assistance

On the night of February 6, 2023, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 struck the border area between Turkey and Syria. A preliminary analysis by Doctors without Borders (MSF) in the days immediately after the earthquake showed that access to housing and decent sanitation was in short supply. Faced with this emergency, we helped MSF provide first aid and medical assistance during the early stages of the crisis.
