Together We Gave Turkish Families Clean Water

Field Report by Operation Blessing

TURKEY – In the wake of the catastrophic earthquake that devastated Iskenderun, Turkey, one mother named Nermin found herself facing a harrowing challenge. She needed clean drinking water to nourish her children. However, amidst the chaos and despair, a glimmer of hope emerged, thanks to the unwavering support of partners like you. Together, we gave Turkish families clean water in the camp where Nermin and her two children now live.

Recalling the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, Nermin painted a vivid picture of the struggles endured by her community. “The day after the earthquake, we were thirsty, but we couldn’t drink water from the tap anymore. The earthquake damaged all the underground pipes, and the clean water mixed with sewage, so it was not safe to drink,” she recounted with a heavy heart.

Thanks to the steadfast prayers and generous support of partners like you, Operation Blessing swiftly responded to the urgent need for clean water. Installing a dedicated access point within the camp, the team brought relief and newfound hope to Nermin and her fellow survivors.
