To the press and the public,
On February 23, 2020, an earthquake affected regions around Xoy in Eastern Kurdistan and Wan in Northern Kurdistan. 9 people died in Elbak district in Wan, and dozens of them were injured. At least 104 people were injured in Xoy, Eastern Kurdistan, and many houses and stables were destroyed in 44 villages. Life is very challenging in places with earthquakes during these heavy winter days.
As Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê, which has been providing assistance to those who need it all over Kurdistan continuously for 28 years, we wish urgent healing to all those who are injured.
We are working to bring aid to our victims in this earthquake. Our assistance will be in the form of one-on-one financial aid to victims and needy families that we continue to identify.
We call on our supporters and friends to show their support for our people who are waiting for help after this earthquake, and to extend their hands through Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê.
