It's heartbreaking to witness the destruction in Syria and Turkiye, but ADRA feels blessed to be able to serve those who have been affected by this tragedy. Our team began distributing urgent aid in Syria on the first day, and our emergency response unit members are in place to meet the needs in Turkiye as well. We know that the full extent of the earthquake's devastation is still being revealed day by day, but ADRA's commitment is long-term and is backed up by the strength of our global network. We are also praying for every person, every family, and every community affected by this earthquake, and we ask that others join us in these prayers as the coming weeks and months will be extremely difficult.

News Updates


Our ADRA office in Syria has been assisting refugee families, women, and children for several years. ADRA remains committed to assisting vulnerable communities and families in rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of this disaster. 

ADRA has a head office in Syria located in Damascus, with sub-offices in Homs and Aleppo. ADRA established operations in the country in 2013 to address the urgent needs of the Syrian people. 

ADRA does not accept clothing, food, or supplies because it is too difficult to transport materials and food to crisis areas.  The best way to help support victims is by contributing to ADRA’s global humanitarian mission.
