Addressing the trauma of families and children in Syria and Turkey.

Earthquake Emergency Fund

In the early hours of Monday 6th February, a devastating earthquake hit Southern Turkey and Syria.

The earthquake killed thousands and made many more homeless. The death toll is expected to rise as families wait for news of their missing loved ones.

Thousands are living in fear: fear of hearing about another death, fear of another earthquake and fear of the uncertain future. Amna is supporting grassroots organisations in Syria and Turkey to provide lifesaving trauma care and psychosocial support.


Please donate to our emergency fund so that we can directly support families and children who have been affected by the earthquake. We’re working with organisations to provide early childhood support and psychosocial care to ensure that communities who have already suffered so much have access to vital, lifesaving trauma care.


Amna provides a number of offerings to support quick responses, humanitarian workers and local communities during crisis.

Our free 3-hour introductory training provides an introduction to safe, good practice principles when setting up psychosocial support spaces/services for displaced communities.

Frontline workers and volunteers have been working day and night in challenging and deeply upsetting conditions since the earthquake struck. Amna works with organisations to support their team’s wellbeing and self-care when providing emergency services through wellbeing spaces.
