The year 2022 was full of ups and downs - in the world, and also for us. The events have changed both us personally and CADUS. We want to tell you about this intense time and its consequences for our organization here. As one of the most profound changes, we will completely withdraw from the Middle East region.
In the early morning hours, a severe earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 M shook the region in the border area between Syria and Turkey. Further strong quakes followed in the course of the day. By the afternoon, more than 2,000 people had already been counted dead, and tens of thousands more have been directly affected by the disaster. CADUS supports the Emergency Response of the Kurdish Red Crescent with medicine and vital non-food items.
