In the middle of the night of 6 February, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred close to Gaziantep in southern Turkey, along the northern border of Syria. Beyond the aftershocks, an additional 7.5 magnitude quake occurred southwest of the city.

There are 17 million people living in the affected area, many of which need shelter, food and medical aid urgently. Of these, 20,000 people have lost their life, with thousands more injured.
