Last week, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake ripped through parts of Turkey and its surrounding areas. It is estimated that nearly 10,000 buildings have been destroyed, and debris continues to fall as the aftershocks of the earthquake persist. The death toll has reached a staggering 20,000 individuals, with children roaming the streets desperately in search of their parents that have likely been buried under the rubble.
Photos of the rubble and destruction left behind in place of buildings and homes in Turkey as a result of the massive earthquake.
As aftershocks continue and the buildings that are still standing begin to collapse, over 13 million survivors have been forced to find protection by hiding in vehicles or on the streets in the freezing cold for fear of being buried under the rubble of a fallen building. Unable to mourn the deaths of their loved ones, or even find their bodies under the rubble, thousands of men, women, and children are in desperate need of urgent medical assistance, medical supplies to care for the thousands of wounded individuals, blankets to keep warm, basic necessities such as food, clean water, and diapers and milk for their children.
The victims of this natural disaster are in dire need of YOUR assistance.
