How to help earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria
More than 2,300 people have died and thousands more have been injured after a massive earthquake rocked Turkey and Syria on Monday morning. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake was one of the strongest to hit the region in more than a century. Amid heavy aftershocks, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD) appealed for international assistance.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said it is “launching immediate cash assistance” from its Emergency Disaster Response Fund to aid relief efforts in both countries.
