Earthquake zone Turkey and Syria: Children are the most affected!
More than 52,000 people fell victim to the deadly earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, one of the worst natural disasters in the world in the last hundred years. More than one hundred thousand people were injured. Icy cold weather and severe flooding worsened the situation for the suffering people, especially the children.
With experienced partner organizations that have been working in disaster areas for many years, the YOU Foundation – Education for Children in Need has developed programs that provide local support to families whose homes have been destroyed and who have experienced much suffering.
Our project work in the earthquake area of Türkiye:
• Mobile learning container “Firefly” – offering educational, sports and cultural activities for children. Professional care staff, psychosocial support, learning opportunities and educational materials are already available.
• Bicycles for children: The programme in the city of Hatay, in the south-east of Turkey, is an important milestone for the children to be mobile and also to be able to “be a child”.
Our project work in the earthquake zone of Syria:
• Reconstruction schools in Syria in Syria, restoration and rehabilitation of destroyed school classrooms, acquisition of suitable school furniture and equipment to create a protected learning environment for the resumption of education are priorities of the YOU Foundation
