Numerous structures were destroyed and thousands of people lost their lives as a result of deadly earthquakes that occurred in southern Turkey and northern Syria. This region also experienced bitterly cold weather.
The death toll from the earthquakes on February 6 has topped 28,000, and it is certain to rise further as efforts are made to free people who remain buried beneath the rubble in the waning hope of finding more survivors.
The tragic earthquakes have shocked people all around the world, and famous people are pleading with the public and other celebrities to help the victims.
Merih Demiral, a Turkish football player, urged other players to step up during these trying times and donate their jerseys for auction so that aid might be organized for the victims in Turkey and Syria.
