Together for the people in Türkiye and Syria

Donors' Conference to raise funds, mobilise resources and coordinate the recovery and relief response following the devastating earthquakes

A Donors’ Conference to raise funds in Brussels

Six weeks after the devastating earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, we come together to support the survivors of this tragedy. Our solidarity will continue to be as strong as it was in the first hours after the earthquake. The people in Türkiye and Syria should know that we are with them for the long run. I invite all nations and all donors, public and private, to contribute and honour the memory of the lives lost, the heroism of the first responders and most importantly to build together a better future for the survivors.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission

The earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria is a disaster of historic proportions. I’m saddened by the losses of lives and homes, and the human suffering. The consequences are truly horrendous. As President of the Council of the European Union, Sweden will do everything in our power, together with the EU and international partners, to help those affected in the next phases of the rehabilitation and early recovery.

Ulf Kristersson, Prime Minister of Sweden

The Conference will be live streamed here
