International Rescue Committee (IRC)
The IRC has been working in Syria since 2012, responding to needs in northwest and northeast Syria, and is actively deploying resources in response to the earthquake destruction and aftermath. IRC supports health facilities and mobile health teams with critical trauma services and primary and mental health services. Additionally, Pinterest supports IRC’s Crisis Response Fund, which enables IRC to arrive on scene within 72 hours of an event to assess acute needs and deliver lifesaving aid. In addition to emergency and crisis response, IRC has a comprehensive approach dedicated to the health, safety, education, and long-term economic wellbeing for people devastated and displaced by conflict and disaster.
International Medical Corps
International Medical Corps has teams on the ground in both Turkey and Syria assessing and providing for those with health needs of those impacted by the earthquakes. They are also in discussion with the World Health Organization regarding deployment of an emergency medical team.
CARE is providing on the ground support to victims of the disaster. CARE is preparing to distribute much needed relief items including food, shelter, hygiene kits, warm weather supplies and cash assistance.
