Support the children and their families

The ICNA stands in support of the children, their families, our colleagues and others who have been affected by this natural disaster.

At least two powerful earthquakes struck in southern Turkey and northern Syria in the early hours of Feb. 6. At least 6,200 people have been killed with thousands more injured. The real death toll and impact of the disaster, however, remains to be seen as emergency services race to rescue families and children trapped beneath the rubble.

The ICNA stands in support of the children, their families, our colleagues and others who have been affected by this natural disaster. We will never forget the warm Turkish hospitality we experienced during our recent ICNA congress 2022 in Antalya from the members of the Turkish Child Neurology Association. In solidarity, we offer our support to our many friends and colleagues and their families as well as to the vulnerable children they care for at this very sad and critical time of suffering and hope for the minimum of loss.

Save the children

Save the Children's teams on the ground are planning to support affected communities with winterization and emergency kits, including blankets, and winter clothing. They are asking supporters to donate to their Children’s Emergency fund.



The initial focus is on water (assessing the impact on main water stations and interruption or damages in services, and getting water to those who have been displaced), child protection (assessing separated and unaccompanied children), nutrition, and education (assessing the damages in schools and whether schools are being used as shelter). Donate now. 



NuDay is a nonprofit working to secure dignified and empowered aid for women and children affected by humanitarian crises worldwide. Their team is on the ground, responding with emergency aid. Donate now via GlobalGiving (one of Global Citizen's partners) to help them reach vulnerable women and children with life-saving support.
