On 6 February 2023 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Türkiye (Turkey) and Syria, destroying livelihoods & buildings and leaving thousands of people in shock.
Communities with no running water, no electricity and no proper sanitation are fearful for their safety. To prevent the spread of disease, Oxfam teams are working in affected areas providing families with lifesaving essentials – clean water, food and shelter.
Together, with your support, we can provide 2 million people with the basics they need to survive the aftermath of this earthquake.
Note: Should the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people in the affected areas, Oxfam Australia will direct donations to our International Crisis Fund to enable us to rapidly address emergencies as they occur.
