On February 6, a terrible string of earthquakes shook northwestern Syria and south-central Turkey. The first one registered a 7.8, while the second one, which occurred nine hours later, registered a 7.7. There were hundreds of aftershocks that followed these.
When the dust settled, tens of thousands of people were trapped in the rubble after hundreds of buildings collapsed. Even though there have been reports of 50,000 deaths, it could be weeks before a complete death toll is tallied.
The phrase “worst natural disaster in modern Turkish and Syrian history” is not an exaggeration. And it only makes sense that they would work together to provide financial assistance for the afflicted countries, given the importance of these nations to Assassin’s Creed fans.
The Assassin’s Creed Community Relief is a community-led initiative from Assassin’s Creed fans to raise money for the reconstruction of Turkey and Syria and to provide assistance to families who have been left without food, water, or shelter.
