Mick and Trudie return to Hatay

In 2020, Mick and Trudie visited Hatay to film the historic and vibrant city of Antakya.

You can watch the original video here if you missed it.

At 4.17am on 6 February 2023, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit southern Türkiye and northern Syria.

Bridges collapsed, roads and airport tarmacs cracked and millions of lives across 11 Turkish provinces were upturned by the time the rest of the country woke up, stunned.

It was followed by a 7.7-magnitude earthquake at 13:24.

The twin earthquakes swallowed swathes of entire cities, resulting in more than 50,000 deaths.

Mick and Trudie’s return visit – one year later

A year after the earthquake, Mick and Trudie returned to Hatay and Antakya to see first hand the upsetting reality of the devastating earthquakes and how those who remained are coping to rebuild lives that were changed forever.

Please show that Hatay has not been forgotten by making a donation to the non-profit organisation Buradayız Hatay featured in the video.

Every donation received goes directly to help the people of Hatay.
