At 23 October 2011, 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck eastern city of Turkey, Van. On October 30th Disasters and Emergency Situations Directorate AFAD of Turkey announced they stopped to search & rescue operations, since there is no hope after 1 week for the people stuck under the rubles. And at the same time AFAD said the death toll is 600,

and have 4152 injured left with a lot of collapsed buildings. Disaster left around 60.000 people homeless in this winter.

Turkey’s eastern part is a place winter is really though and since these people are homeless now they really need some help. Already a lot of country helped them, and of course there are any campaigns for these people.
