Turkey and Syria - helping the victims

On Sunday the UK's development minister Andrew Mitchell travelled to southern Turkey to see first-hand the impact of UK aid, as Britain continues to help those affected by the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria. #

  • British aid has been flowing since day one of this terrible earthquake to help coordinate the emergency response in both Turkey and Syria, and provide life-saving support to those who need it. 
  • That is why the international development minister travelled to southern Turkey on Friday to witness first-hand the impact of UK aid – touring a UK-led Field Hospital in Türkoğlu to thank UK medical staff for providing lifesaving care and meeting UK-aid-funded White Helmets to discuss what is needed in the next stage of the response. 
  • This visit follows a further £25 million major UK support package, 77 search and rescue experts with specialist equipment, as well as four rescue dogs – ensuring life-saving medical support reaches those most in need.
