Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal

In February 2023, devastating earthquakes hit on the border of Turkey and Syria. The death toll is close to 60,000. This is shattering news and adds to the challenges of the war in this area for over a decade.

Immediately after the earthquake, the UCC posted a prayer and short statement in response to this crisis. While the earthquake was on the border, the tremors were felt as far away as Lebanon and Cyprus. At this time, we are issuing an appeal to help recovery efforts in Turkey and Syria. It is hard to tell what other areas are affected or the extent of the damage from this seismic event.

Our international partners are assessing the needs of survivors. They are providing food, blankets, medicine, clothing, and shelter in response to immediate needs.


Amid this current uncertainty, you can be certain that with your financial support the United Church of Christ will be there helping those in need. Give generously. You may also text UCCDISASTER to 41444. 

All donations will be deposited into the International Emergency fund designated for “Turkey and Syria Earthquake Response”. Your generous financial support will be used by our partners in the areas of greatest need, for relief and long-term recovery. You can also mail a check made payable to the United Church of Christ, PO BOX 71957 Cleveland, OH 44194. Please be sure to note “Turkey and Syria” on your check in the memo section.
