HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE OF FCHAIN TO TURKEY

One of the deadliest and largest earthquakes of this century struck Turkey badly on February 6, 2023, at 04.17 a.m. and 1:24 p.m. ( local time). The 7.8. magnitude earthquake

hit 10 provinces of Turkey: Gaziantep, Kahramanmarash, Malatya, Hatay, Diyarbakir, Kilis, Adana, Adiyaman, Osmaniye, and Shanliurfa, and was felt in the other cities and towns of the country, as well as in the neighbouring countries. Though earthquakes are common in Turkey, the magnitude of this one was enormous, causing massive damage. There are thousands of deaths, and tens of thousands are injured. As well as, thousands of buildings have been reduced to rubble.

According to Fuat Oktay, Vice President of Turkey, there were 300 aftershocks after the initial quakes. 

Süleyman Soylu, Home Minister of Turkey said that they had set a “fourth-level alarm,” meaning the need for international aid. Following his statement condolences and call for help came from many countries of the world.

Some countries sent humanitarian aid and rescuers to Turkey, and Azerbaijan was the first among them to come for help without waiting to be asked for it. The Civil Defence Units of the Ministry of Emergencies of Azerbaijan sent 370 people to Turkey. Rescuers of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Emergency Situations rescued people from the rubble. It is installing a mobile field hospital in Kahramanmarash which has already reached its destination.

Both local and foreign rescuers are now racing against time and trying to pull survivors out from under the debris.

Financial Chain Corporation sent humanitarian aid to Turkey to help earthquake survivors in the country.

FCHAIN is deeply saddened by the consequences of the earthquakes, expresses its deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and wishes the injured the quickest recovery.

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with Turkey.
