MESSAGE FROM USCS Türkiye
Greetings from Türkiye:
We are reaching out to you from the U.S. Commercial Service in Türkiye to share how you may help the recovery efforts in the wake of multiple large earthquakes in Southeast Türkiye and Northern Syria on February 6. The earthquakes of magnitudes 7.7, 7.5, and 6.0 have left cities leveled, with thousands of lives lost and missing. More than 5,500 buildings have collapsed and more than 10,000 are in danger of collapsing. In coordination with the U.S. Department of State, which is coordinating assistance to the Turkish Government, we would like to share with you the following resources to contribute to Türkiye’s disaster recovery.
How can you help?
Every hour counts at this point to save lives. Thank you for your help in advance.
