A devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Aegean Sea near Izmir, Turkey on Friday 30 October 2020, killing at least 116 people, and injuring over 900.
£100 – Emergency aid – help us to provide urgent food and water to survivors of the earthquake. So powerful was the tremor that it triggered a tsunami. Buildings have collapsed, and hundreds are still unaccounted for. It’s feared that they’re trapped among the rubble of their homes. Quba Trust is doing everything possible with our partners to get emergency assistance to our brothers and sisters in Turkey that are currently suffering and in need of help due to this unforeseen calamity.
“People’s homes and lives have been destroyed in an instant, it is the worst position for any human to be in, and we’ll approach this awful situation with every ounce of compassion as we give people the help they need.”
Quba Trust’s work
We have immediately dispatched our local Quba Trust team to Izmir. They are to provide hot meals to survivors, helping them to stay nourished and fed in the immediate aftermath.
We’re continuing to work with the Turkish Red Crescent to provide food and water to survivors of the earthquake. We also aim to provide them with shelter as soon as possible as the devastating occurrence has left several homeless. Please donate, and help our local team in Turkey to provide urgent relief to survivors of this shocking tragedy.
