Türkiye Earthquake 2023
Humanitarian Transition Overview
Following the two earthquakes that struck Türkiye on 6 February 2023, humanitarian actors have supported the Government of Türkiye’s efforts in providing emergency assistance. As of the end of the Flash Appeal in May 2023, targeted assistance for critical humanitarian needs has been provided to 5.4 million people. This assistance complemented the Government’s efforts to provide a wide range of social protection packages for affected families, farm owners and businesses, establish temporary shelter solutions while also beginning the reconstruction of homes.
With more than 9 million people affected and approximately 3.6 million people left without homes to safely reside in, a significant amount of time will be required to rebuild, restore markets and support families to find sustainable solutions, particularly in the four most affected provinces.
Overall, the situation remains highly fluid. Efforts to consolidate sites and expand container sites have led to a series of relocations and movements.
