Earthquake Türkiye / Syria
We support the Turkish and Syrian people affected by the devastating earthquake
On Monday morning, 6th of February, the Southeastern Anatolian region and Syria were struck with a magnitude 7.8 earthquake with several aftershocks. More than 20 million people are already affected and the World Health Organization (WHO) expects that the number will rise to up to 23 million.
To date, more than 50.000 people have already lost their lives and another tens of thousands people are being injured. With the devastated destruction of infrastructure and millions of people being homeless, there is an urgent need for help.
Siemens Caring Hands is now collecting donations to implement important relief measures and support the people on the ground.
