The “Suhaila Sultan” ship is a floating city that provides accommodation and shelter for those affected by the earthquake in the port of Iskenderun, in Hatay, southern Turkey.

Those affected usually resort to many options for accommodation, such as tents, prefabricated houses, train cars, hotels, and university dormitories, while ships are among the most prominent options available in coastal cities.

In this regard, and in coordination with the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, the “Suhaila Sultan” ship of the “Kara Deniz / Black Sea” company docked in Iskenderun recently, in order to host the earthquake victims.

“Suhaila Sultan” is the first Turkish ship that can be converted into a floating city to shelter the afflicted in emergency situations such as natural disasters.

The ship includes many service facilities such as: a nursery, an educational section, a medical section, a restaurant, social sections, and common living spaces.

It can accommodate more than 1,500 people, and it includes 72 rooms with a capacity of 12 people and 116 rooms with a capacity of 4 to 6 people, each containing an air conditioner, a refrigerator and a TV.

The ship can provide the opportunity to continue education on board, as it includes an educational department with 18 halls, including computer halls, a conference room, and a communications center.

While the medical department provides the opportunity to provide health care to inmates, thanks to its clinics and dispensary, which contains 20 beds.

The ship was designed in a Turkish shipyard in the form of a floating hotel, which includes children’s games and a small playground.

The death toll from the Turkey earthquake has risen to 50,096, according to the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Agency (AFAD).

AFAD said, in a statement, that the death toll from the earthquake rose to 50,096, and the injured to 107,204.

Fuat Oktay, the Turkish Vice President, said that the death toll from the earthquake among foreigners in Turkey reached 6,807 people.

On February 6, two earthquakes of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 struck southern Turkey, followed by thousands of violent aftershocks, killing tens of thousands of people and leaving huge material damage.
