The New Asylum Questionnaire

Turkiye Syria Earthquake

From Disasters Emergency Committee 27th March 2023

A new report from Fundanur Ozturk, Berza Simsek, reporting for BBC News in Turkey, tells the story of people still searching for loved ones, 7 weeks after the deadly earthquakes hit the region. 

There is no official figure for the number of missing people across Turkey following the earthquakes, however nearly 2,000 unaccompanied children have been rescued from under the rubble and registered with the authorities, according to official figures provided by the Ministry of Family and Social Affairs.

DEC charities are continuing to work in Turkey and Northern Syria to suppose those affected by the earthquakes, providing medical treatment, shelter, psychological support and more.
