Turkey – Syria Earthquake 2023

On February 6th 2023, a series of powerful earthquakes and subsequent aftershocks struck Turkey and Syria. The destructive effect was massive, causing major human suffering, disruption of day-to-day life and significant damages to the region’s infrastructure. 

In the first month after the emergency, Alpinter supplied over 12.000 tents, 200.000 blankets, 50.000 sleeping bags and large amounts of Shelter Tool Kits and other emergency relief items. 

End of February, a dedicated Alpinter team visited the hit areas of Kirikhan, Kahramanmanas and other impacted areas in and around the epicenter of the earthquake.  The main objective of the field visit was to understand the use and performance of shelter products supplied in the initial phase of the crisis. This analysis provides input on how Alpinter can enhance the support to the beneficiaries through product improvements for tented accommodation solutions as well as for the EMT2 Field Hospital equipment, assisting in this way the Belgian government and other international relief agencies in their current and future crisis-response efforts.
