Earthquake in Türkiye
On Monday, February 6

From The United Church of Canada webpage ...

Powerful earthquakes continue to be felt throughout southern Türkiye (Turkey) near the border with Syria. There is extensive damage and loss of lives. The death toll has now surpassed 50,000 people, and thousands more are missing.

Help the people of Türkiye and northern Syria devastated by the earthquake.

The winter weather makes the situation even more dire for people who are without shelter, warm clothes, blankets, water, and food. Some of the people affected by the earthquake were already displaced by conflict. People need emergency shelter, blankets, mattresses, clean water, food, and hygiene items.

We join Mission & Service partners the Middle East Council of Churches, ACT Alliance, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, and the Humanitarian Coalition to show tangible support for the people of Türkiye and Syria. 

Be a part of these efforts by donating now. Thank you for your generosity.
