​Support for those affected by the Turkey-Syria earthquake

At Newcross, we’re truly saddened by the destruction caused by the earthquakes that hit southern Turkey, close to the northern Syrian border, on the 6th February 2023. These earthquakes killed over 45,000 people, injured over 100,000, and damaged almost 60,000 buildings – leaving a huge number of people in need of aid and support.

To help those affected by this devastating event, we have donated £100,000 to ShelterBox, a registered charity who provide shelter, essential items and technical assistance to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people following a disaster.

ShelterBox are helping affected people in Turkey and Syria in a range of different ways, including:

  • Sourcing emergency tents which have been flown to the area

  • Arranging trucks of aid carrying thermal blankets and other supplies

  • Providing winter coats for children in Syria

To donate to this very worthy cause and learn more about the charity’s vital work, please visit the ShelterBox website.

Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by this disaster.
