The Southern Baptist Convention has been quick to address the needs of those impacted by the Turkey-Syria earthquake through the disaster relief organization Send Relief. Send Relief and partners have already distributed blankets, water, and heating resources in affected areas and continue to assess how best to help.
Reports currently indicate more than 2,300 people have been killed, over 12,000 more injured, and over 5,000 buildings damaged or collapsed in Turkey; and more than 1,100 killed, at least 1,284 injured, and hundreds of buildings damaged or collapsed in Syria. Many have been displaced from their homes and sleeping outside in winter weather and temperatures.
Please pray for those affected and our partners responding. No U.S. Volunteers can be currently utilized. The best way to help is to pray and give.
