To your attention,

On February 6th 2023, two earthquakes of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 took place in Kahramanmaraş, Türkiye, causing massive destruction in 10 provinces and affecting the lives of 13.5 million people. In the aftermath of this natural disaster, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality immediately built an extensive supply chain from land, air, and sea to provide emergency support for people in the earthquake region. Thanks to that, ships, airplanes, and hundreds of trucks carrying vital emergency relief supplies and staff reached the earthquake zone.

Izmir Metropolitan Municipality established a large support center in Hatay, and coordination centers were built in Adıyaman, Osmaniye, and Kahramanmaraş. These centers ensure more effective delivery of aid to the entire earthquake-affected area. Furthermore, the Municipality will increase its institutional presence and capacity in the region and will provide crisis municipalism services at full scale for a long period of time.

Through our solidarity, we will recover from this terrible natural disaster.
