Fuat Oktay, Vice President of Turkey, announced the launch of a campaign that allows philanthropists who own additional homes to allocate them to those affected by the earthquake disaster for free, or rent them at reasonable prices for them.

This came in a press conference at the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Headquarters “AFAD”, with the Ministers of Labor and Social Security, Dat Bilgin, and Minister of Industry and Technology, Mustafa and Rank, regarding the ongoing activities following the disaster.

Oktay pointed out that people who own more than one house in the country, whether citizens residing inside or outside Turkey, can allocate their additional homes to those affected by the earthquake within the framework of the “My Home is Your Home” campaign.

He stated that those who wish to participate in the campaign from homeowners can apply via the website “”.

He explained that philanthropists will be able to allocate their homes either free of charge or rent them at reasonable prices to those affected by the earthquake temporarily, with the guarantee of the state.

He pointed out that the state will guarantee the evacuation of the house after the end of the specified period and hand it over to its owner, and there will be home insurance to repair any damages to it.

He pointed out that philanthropists can also help families affected by the earthquake to pay rent through this platform, and thus through donations, it is possible to cover the costs of rented homes within the framework of the campaign.

At the dawn of February 6, an earthquake of 7.7 degrees struck southern Turkey and northern Syria, followed by another hours later with a magnitude of 7.6, followed by thousands of violent aftershocks, which caused great loss of life and property in both countries.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
