A recent earthquake has killed nearly 3,000 people in Turkey and Syria.
Rescuers are racing to pull survivors from beneath the destruction.
The damage and destruction caused by the earthquake affect infrastructures.
Reports claim a number of hospitals have been ruined.
Syria and Turkey are also home to millions of refugees.
This devastation must be treated with humanitarian effort.
The amount of assistance and reconstruction needed in these cities was already dire, and now the urgency is even greater.
We at the Europe Peace Foundation are asking for a collective effort from governments- international and local.
