FastShippingLine sends relief worth €1.1 Million to Turkish-Syrian earthquake victims

International aid from around the world is flowing into Turkey and Syria following the devastating earthquakes that have killed at least 11,000 people across both countries. 

Millions of dollars worth of aid has been flown in, despite the difficulties relief and humanitarian services face in reaching some of the worst-hit areas.

Syria’s state news agency SANA reported that help from several countries – including Oman, the UAE, and Jordan – had arrived in Damascus and in Aleppo, which has been badly affected by the earthquake. 

Planes carrying aid from Jordan and the UAE had arrived in Damascus on Wednesday.

Both Oman and Saudi Arabia have ordered the creation of an air bridge to deliver supplies to Syria and Turkey, although the extent of their support is unclear. 

Qatar said it was operating relief flights to Turkey to transport rescue teams and is also supplying vehicles, tents, and a field hospital, according to the state news agency. 

Doha-funded Qatar Charity, which has an office in Gaziantep, said it was distributing 27,000 hot meals in the stricken Turkish city, with supplies sent to other parts of Turkey and to Syria. 

Thousands of buildings have collapsed in Syria and Turkey, leaving many homeless and facing dire conditions.

Algeria, Morocco, Libya, and Tunisia have all sent aid. 

Algiers delivered 115 tons in the form of food, medical supplies, tents, and blankets to help those affected by the earthquake, and sent a civil protection team to help with relief operations, according to SANA.  

Morocco pledged to send urgent medical and logistical aid to Turkey, according to local media. However, Rabat’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has yet to issue an official statement on the matter.

Tunisia sent 41 rescue workers to Turkey and 19 to Syria, pledging it would send a further 15 tons of aid, mainly blankets, food, and infant formula, 11 tons of which will go to Turkey and four to Syria.

Libya Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dbeibah ordered the “immediate” dispatch of 55 civil protection and military engineering rescuers and five search and rescue dogs.

Egypt President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi spoke with regime counterpart Bashar Al-Assad for the first time on Tuesday, expressing solidarity with the Syrian people.

He vowed to provide “all forms of support and aid”, according to an Egyptian spokesperson. Sisi also had a conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. 

Iraq, Iran, Tunisia, Bahrain, and Lebanon also sent aid and civil defence teams search for survivors and clear debris. Lebanon on Tuesday announced it would send soldiers, engineers, paramedics, and dogs and their handlers trained in search and rescue operations to the earthquake-stricken areas. 

Millions of dollars worth of aid and relief supplies have also arrived from other parts of the world. 

Now we Parcel Handler have donated €1.1 Million in food supply and portable water to the Turkish relief foundation for our support. We encourage everyone capable of supporting to do same. We are all human and never can tell where disaster can hit next
