Earthquake Turkey and Syria
Syria and Turkey were struck by a devastating earthquake. Thousands of homes and buildings collapsed and every hour more victims are being registered. The fear and desperation are heartbreaking.
Our thoughts go out to all victims of this immense disaster. Habitat is in close contact with partner organizations on the ground and we support them and the lifesaving work they are doing under extremely difficult circumstances.
Habitat will help rebuild
Habitat has no presence in the region; however we are already preparing for the second phase of the emergency response. After the first phase where medical care, food, water are what people need the most, the damage needs to be assessed and homes need to be rebuild. This kind of help will be much needed to help people get back on their feet.
Habitat will work closely with partner organizations in the area and provide technical assistance for the reconstruction. We will also train them in our proven method ‘pathways to permanence’ and share from our experience with rebuilding after the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal. Allowing us to provide a safe home to the most vulnerable people in the affected area.
