While more than 50 thousand people lost their lives and more than half a million buildings were damaged in the cities affected by the Kahramanmaraş earthquakes,civil society organizations operating in the region suffered both loss of life and material damage.

In the report we prepared through a meeting with 172 association representatives in Adıyaman, Hatay, Kahramanmaraş and Malatya, it became clear that the most important problem after the earthquake in the 4 cities affected by the earthquake was the material damage. The offices of most of the organizations were severely damaged by the earthquake and their inventory became unusable.

The report pointed out that organizations, which usually have a small number of members and mostly no paid staff, lost members and staff due to the earthquake, while volunteer work in the organizations increased after the earthquake.
