“A catastrophic earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck South-Eastern Turkey, leaving a devastating impact on the region.
The quake hit the area near the Syrian border, taking the lives of 1,500 people and injuring several others as they slept. According to the US Geological Survey, the tremor occurred at 04:17 local time (01:17 GMT) at a depth of 17.9 km (11 miles) near the city of Gaziantep. Unfortunately, the tragedy did not end there as a second quake, measuring 7.5 in magnitude, hit the Elbistan district of Kahramanmaras province hours later. Buildings have crumbled, and rescue teams are frantically searching for survivors trapped under piles of debris. As the rescue operation continues, the death toll is expected to increase, causing widespread concern and heartbreak.”
During these crucial moments, Al-Baraka Welfare Trust UK stands firm with those who have been devastated by the situation. In the face of these difficulties, we appeal everyone to step out & help the victim.
The 6th of February 2023 marked a devastating day for Turkey and northern Syria as a massive earthquake struck the region. The quake, with a magnitude of 7.8 on the Richter scale, had its epicentre near the city of Gaziantep in south-eastern Turkey. The consequences were devastating, with over 1,800 people losing their lives in the catastrophe. Buildings and homes were destroyed, leaving thousands of people homeless and seeking refuge. The earthquake caused widespread damage and left a trail of destruction in its wake. Emergency services were quick to respond, but the scale of the disaster made it difficult to provide immediate aid to all those affected. The aftermath of the earthquake saw a massive outpouring of support from local communities and international aid organizations. Despite the best efforts of rescuers and aid workers, the death toll continued to rise, with many more people suffering serious injuries. The earthquake remains one of the deadliest in recent memory, and its impact will be felt for years to come.
Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said, “Whoever helps ease someone in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this world and hereafter.”
The earthquake caused widespread devastation and left thousands without homes and basic necessities of life. The tremors resulted in the collapse of nearly 3,000 buildings, leaving families in dire straits with no access to food, water, shelter, or medicine. The harsh winter weather added to their misery, as they were left exposed to sub-zero temperatures, heavy rain and snow, with no refuge from the elements.
