Layla’s family gets emergency essentials after Turkey-Syria earthquake

Layla's Story

For countless families in Turkey and Syria, life changed forever on February 6, 2023. Tens of thousands lost their homes — and more — in the strongest earthquake to hit the region in over a century. With your support, we were able to respond immediately, providing access to life-saving essentials for people who lost everything.

Layla*, 55, is one of those people. She and her eight children lost their home in the earthquake and live in a temporary shelter, where they were buying expensive bottled water to drink, cook, and wash with. But donors like you helped change that: Water tanks were installed for easy access to the clean water Layla and her kids needed — a grace amid the heaviness.

We’re so thankful for God’s sustaining power in the face of disaster, and for your generosity in helping families rebuild their lives. Thank you for bringing the gift of hope!
