On Monday, 06 February, a devastating earthquake took lives and displaced thousands of people in Turkey and Syria. Many lost their homes in communities that are already in critical need of humanitarian assistance. Freezing winter conditions are further endangering lives in the affected regions. Our LERRN partners, Muzna Dureid and Mustafa Alio, are mobilizing local and international efforts to support organizations on the grounds who provide critical rescue efforts.  

We express our sincere condolences to everyone affected by this catastrophe. Our thoughts are with those impacted and their loved ones.
