THE CAUSE: Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal - On Monday 6 February, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck south-eastern Turkey in the early hours of the morning followed by a series of powerful aftershocks and a 7.7 magnitude earthquake nine hours later. Another earthquake of 6.4 magnitude struck on 20 February. Over 50,000 people have died as a result of the earthquakes, with many thousands more injured in the freezing temperatures of the area. Among survivors are more than 226,000 pregnant women in Turkey and 130,000 in Syria, of those 38,800 are expected to deliver in the next month. Donation to this charity will be used to provide support and aid that includes essentials, shelters, first aid, rescue operations and providing psychosocial support.
