EMERGENCY: EARTHQUAKE IN Türkiye
A massive earthquake has left Turkish and Syrian communities without food or shelter during the coldest part of winter. Survivors urgently need food today. Please give your most generous gift.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has impacted families across Türkiye and Syria. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is delivering emergency food assistance to communities that have been hit hardest by the quake.
Bordered by five countries, Türkiye hosts the largest refugee population in the world – including over 3 million Syrian refugees. Although most refugees live alongside the host population, there are still 45,000 living in camps located in the southeast close to the epicenter of the quakes.
Over 35,000 people have been killed by the quake
WFP has worked in Türkiye for 11 years
WFP aims to assist 300,000 people affected by the quake

From climate-related disasters to outbreaks of conflict, WFP is the world’s first responder. We can launch an emergency response within 72 hours to deliver assistance.
WFP is providing family food packages and hot meals. This food requires no cooking and provides immediate relief to families facing freezing winter temperatures.
