Catholic Relief Services for Syria/Turkey Earthquake

On February 6, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake devastated large areas of central Turkey and northwest Syria. The death toll has surpassed 11,000.

Catholic Relief Services will support emergency relief efforts led by local partners in both Syria and Turkey with Caritas Turkey, Caritas Syria in Aleppo and Lattakia—where extensive damage has been reported—and other local partners. Already in Turkey, Caritas Anatolia, in coordination with authorities, is bringing displaced people to safe, open spaces and distributing hot meals and clothing. The dioceses of Izmir and Istanbul are collecting donations to send to the Anatolia Region.

Your gifts will help partners to provide  safe shelter, and access to food, clean water and hygiene supplies.

Please fill out the secure form to make a one-time donation to help families affected by the earthquakes by going to https://support.crs.org/donate/earthquakes.

Thank you!
