How have children’s mental health been impacted by the earthquakes?

Since the tragedy, children in Turkey and Syria have struggled with anxiety and other mental health issues, and one in three of the kids who were displaced by the earthquakes a year ago are still being housed in temporary shelters.

Children in Syria who survived the earthquake have had to deal with escalating hostilities as well as a downturn in the economy that has further harmed educational and medical facilities.

Children are also struggling to process and cope with everything they have endured. 85% of the disabled children who spoke out to Save the Children in the aftermath of the earthquakes said that they were finding it difficult to interact with friends, family, teachers, and other people as a result of what they had experienced during the earthquakes.

When did earthquakes hit Türkiye’s southern province of Hata?

On February 20, earthquakes of 6. 4 and 5. 8 magnitudes shook the southern province of Hatay, an already devastated by earthquakes just weeks earlier.

Dan Stewart of Save the Children said from Hatay, Turkey, “There are heartbreaking reports of yet more collapsed buildings and power outages in a region where over 46,000 lives have already been lost and buildings destroyed.” Children have been injured, lost loved ones, and many were already showing signs of acute distress. Hundreds of thousands of people have once again fled onto the streets in the bitter cold. Families who have already lost everything have just experienced another devasting blow. “.
