Turkey and Syria earthquake appeal

Turkey and Syria have been devastated by powerful earthquakes that have killed more than 33,000 people and left hundreds of thousands more hurt and homeless.

As frantic rescue efforts continue, the World Health Organisation has warned that without shelter, water and power, many survivors are still at risk of losing their lives.

We are asking you to give generously and support efforts to help people in a desperate situation. All funds raised will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Turkey-Syria earthquake appeal, which brings together leading UK aid charities to help with the search efforts and provide vital medicines, clean water and temporary accommodation.

The UK government will match fund all donations to the appeal up to £5m, meaning every pound donated will be doubled.
