On February 6, massive earthquakes struck Syria and Türkiye, destroying hundreds of thousands of homes and killing more than 55,000 people. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams in northwestern Syria began treating patients within the first hours after the earthquakes struck.

MSF has also been providing psychological first aid to survivors, treating their psychological wounds alongside their physical wounds. Watch this video to see how MSF is caring for people processing trauma in the aftermath of the earthquakes in Syria.
