    Story

    The engineers I worked with in Gaziantep and northern Syria are incredible.

    They made search and rescue equipment for the White Helmets, repaired medical devices in more than 80 health facilities and have developed shelter winterisation technologies using recycled plastic. This photo is taken from Reuters TV shows one of the heavy lift airbags they made in Syria (to British standards, using materials found at truck repair stops) being used to rescue a child from a collapsed building in Azaz.

    They now urgently need support to respond to the massive earthquakes of 6th Feb 2023 that have devastated their region. I am supporting their organisation Sahaya Hazir, a Turkish-registered charity - see Sahaya Hazir website - (this translates to Field Ready in Turkish!).

    Keep track of their progress on Facebook - Sahaya Hazir, on LinkedIn - Field Ready Turkiye and on Instagram - Sahaya Hazir. Or reach out to me on the JustGiving form below if you have any questions!

      It is now coming up to 6 months since the earthquakes in south-east Turkey and in north-west Syria. The effects 6th February 2023 earthquakes will be felt for many years to come, but my friends at Sahaya Hazir have not only (more or less) recovered their lives but have also done a great deal with your donations. Thank you all once again! The team has prepared the infographic below which shows what they did in the first month - the time when your donations made the biggest impact.

      The team at Sahaya Hazier spent the first few days of last week helping the Turkish Red Crescent society deliver aid packages to collective shelter centres - such as local schools and mosques

      Thank you all so much for your support! Over the last week, I have been regularly in touch with Emad who leads the team in Gaziantep and with Usamah who leads the team in northern Syria. They and their families are ok in the circumstances - they have had to sleep in their cars, and in the cold, because their homes are not structurally safe but they are active and coping. WhatsApp is working well now. The response work they are doing is going well... I'll share some updates about that next...
