Everything destroyed in an instant.

At the epicentre of Gaziantep, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck in the early hours of the morning. People were sleeping, never to wake up again.
Since then, a series of further powerful quakes have struck the border with Syria claiming thousands of lives and destroying all buildings and infrastructure. For those who miraculously survived, there is nothing. Give now and provide them with much-needed food and water to help them carry on.

Your support can help them recover and rebuild.

The earthquakes may have only taken seconds to wreak havoc and devastation, but the recovery will take years. For those people caught in the disaster, homes have been destroyed. Water supply, gas supply and electricity are damaged. Food distribution chains no longer exist. A huge region spanning more 500km is on its knees. The scale of this disaster is hard to comprehend. Your donation can pay for food that can sustain and nourish traumatised and injured victims. You can save impoverished children and their families from continuing hunger, giving them time to heal and grieve. When you give, your Zakat, Fidya or Sadaqah donation can pay for a one- month food pack for a family or hot cooked food to warm those without shelter.

Donate now and you can also provide a monthly Iftar pack for those who are facing Ramadan in the hardest of circumstance.
