The earthquakes at the beginning of February, is the worst earthquake in Syria since 1995!
Thousands of people have died at the Syrian-Turkish border region, many millions of people are homeless, countless livelihoods destroyed and many of the consequences are not yet foreseeable, it has long been clear that the catastrophe is more than a force of nature - it is deeply political!
Especially northern part of Syria is controlled by Islamist rebel groups, where civilian infrastructures are being deliberately destroyed, people have been worn down by war for years, live under the most adverse conditions in the face of oppression and is now operating with limited resources and regions impossible to get any direct air support.
This earthquake shows more than ever that it is used as a political instrument!
Now, even for much-needed aid, remains largely sealed off. Accordingly, there is a lack of everything, including for the recovery and medical care of the victims.
For years, Medico international has been supporting organizations in the areas currently affected by the earthquakes. In spite of much resistance, these local partners are now providing emergency aid, also and especially where international aid can hardly reach. In addition, it is a matter of political solidarity:
to enforce the right to help of all !
Please double up on your effort in supporting those groups.
SUPPORT THE EMERGENCY AID OF LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS IN THE REGION WITH A DONATION UNDER THE KEYWORD "EMERGENCY EARTHQUAKE“.
He is a photographer, born in the north of Morocco. As a young child, his family moved to Belgium where he grew up. After finishing his studies as an interior architect, he was eager to learn to work the camera. In an auto-didactic way, he developed his own unique vision on fashion photography and later on managed to fuse his moroccan roots, tradition and culture with the western world he grew up with. The last years his Moroccan DNA is flowing more and more through his veins and his works. The urge to show this rich moroccan heritage through an artistic eye is present in everything he portraits and the inspiration he gets from his motherland is endless.

ONE WARM WINTER
Since 2012 One Warm Winter is speaking up for homeless people and the topic of being homeless to make younger people more aware and put it more onto a public platform to discuss. In order to do that, we work with various social organizations and try to focus on all the different levels and needs people on the streets have. We try to show easy and simple ways of helping and finding solutions. Furthermore, we want people to be more empathic about the situation and motivate them to participate in any way.
One Warm Winter is accepting small and big donations for the past 9 years to buy basic and necessary goods. They want to show that it’s not necessary to spend money on charity events to collect donations but rather spent it where it’s needed the most. Since 2021 they are also supporting long-term housing projects in Berlin as party of one solution to get rid of the main problem.
