The situation

Natural disaster

Poverty and homelessness

On 6 February 2023, South East Turkey was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. The most powerful natural disaster in the region for at least one hundred years, flattening hundreds of thousands of buildings and displacing millions of people.

At least 2 million people lost their homes in the middle of winter, according to estimates, causing an acute housing crisis.
