Two years after the earthquake in Van, families are still in need... Scroll down to help TACAWA assist 8 families still living in container housing.
- 200 families with a population of 1,000 people still live in container homes furnished by the Turkish state.
- They have no electricity since August 2013.
- Their homes are dismantled if they leave them empty for a few days.
- The winter in Van is cold, but those who burn tires for warmth are faced with backlash from neighbors.
- Their trash is not collected.
