In the early morning hours of that day, a catastrophic 7.8 magnitude earthquake, accompanied by numerous aftershocks, ravaged Turkey and Syria, leaving both regions in ruins. The earthquake caused immense loss of life, with over 50,000 people tragically losing their lives, and it left more than 2 million individuals displaced and homeless.

Thanks to your unwavering support, Crossroads Cares was able to assist 4,780 people in Turkey. The aid included essential supplies such as food packs, clean water, hygiene kits, and tent shelters. These provisions were crucial in meeting the immediate needs of those affected, offering them hope, and temporary shelter amidst the chaos. Your gifts directly contributed to improving the lives of those affected by the earthquake, providing them with much-needed support during a time of immense hardship.
Despite the challenges in delivering aid to families in Syria, our dedicated partners were able to overcome these obstacles and provide essential relief to an additional 228+ families. The situation in Syria posed unique difficulties, making it even more remarkable that aid was successfully delivered to those in need. Your gifts played a crucial role in reaching out to these families and providing the hope, and assistance they required during this difficult time.
