Support for the victims of the 6 February 2023 earthquakes


10 February 2023

The directors, fellows and staff of the British Institute At Ankara would like to renew our condolences to everyone affected by the earthquakes that occurred in south-eastern Türkiye and north-western Syria on 6 February. We have lost relatives, friends and colleagues in the disaster and are reaching out to those who survived the earthquakes and their aftermath. Government, non-governmental organisations, and civil society are all active in supporting the recovery effort in the region and we invite you to consider their appeals for support. Our members and colleagues in the United Kingdom may wish to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee earthquake appeal. The first £5,000,000 in donations they receive are being matched by the UK government.
