Miracle of Hope: Children Rescued from Earthquake-Ravaged Turkey, Death Toll Continues to Rise

The death toll from the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey on Friday continues to rise, with the latest estimates of over 22,000 people killed. Rescue efforts are still underway, with children being plucked from the ruins of the quake.

International aid is lagging behind the need, with David Miliband, CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), calling the situation a “double crisis” for Syrian refugees in Turkey.

The IRC is calling for international aid to help with the search and rescue mission, as well as to provide basic necessities and medical care to those affected.

Newsweek has also highlighted the plight of those affected by the earthquake, with an opinion piece calling for help in saving victims in Turkey and Syria.

The situation in Turkey is dire and the death toll is expected to continue to rise. People around the world are encouraged to donate to organizations such as the IRC in order to help those affected by the earthquake.
