Millions of children continue to face desperate conditions in Türkiye and Syria
UNICEF calls for continued support for the 6.2 million children in dire need of humanitarian assistance.
One hundred days after the deadliest earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria's recent history, millions of children and families are struggling to rebuild their lives, with 2.5 million children in Türkiye and 3.7 million in Syria in need of continued humanitarian assistance.
The two initial devastating earthquakes on 6 February 2023, followed by thousands of aftershocks, have pushed many families to the brink and left children homeless and without access to essential services, including safe water, education, medical care, and increased protection risks for vulnerable children.
Your donations can help children and families
In Türkiye, vulnerable children in hard-hit areas are exposed to threats including violence, forced marriage or labor, and dropping out of school. The education of nearly four million school-enrolled children was disrupted, including more than 350,000 refugee and migrant children.
In Syria, children were already struggling after 12 years of sustained conflict, which has had an impact on all infrastructure and public services.
