Humble Turkey-Syria Earthquake Relief Bundle

On the 6th of February 2023, a devastating Earthquake struck southern and central Turkey, as well as northern and western Syria. This awful event has caused a catastrophic loss of life and devastation to many homes, towns, and cities, which has displaced millions of people across both regions.

To assist with the relief and rescue efforts of this terrible disaster, we have joined forces with other great game developers and Humble Bundle to release a special Turkey & Syria Relief Bundle. 100% of the proceeds from your bundle purchase go directly to helping those affected and includes 70 gaming titles worth over $1000.  

Humble selected three charities to be part of the bundle. These charities have focused efforts in Turkey and Syria, in directly helping those displaced and affected by these terrible events. 

Direct Relief is deploying medical supplies from its facilities in the U.S. and Europe for Turkey and Syria. More than 22 tons of medical aid has been staged or is being shipped for Turkey and Syria since the earthquake began. The organization has also committed $3 million in financial support for response efforts.

International Medical Corps responded immediately to the Disaster. They coordinated with local health authorities to address critical gaps in services and enable functional healthcare facilities to rapidly scale up their care for communities, dispatching medical supplies, consumables, pharmaceuticals, and non-food items to support healthcare facilities and people.

Save The Children is coordinating closely with local partners on the ground, including Turkish Red Crescent and Support to Life, to distribute tents, hygiene kits, clothing, heaters, blankets, and other essential items. In addition, their Emergency Health Unit (EHU) provides life-saving healthcare in emergencies.

So many great game developers have come together to help support this cause by contributing their titles to the bundle. You'll find every genre under the sun, and all for a fraction of the price (or more if you're feeling generous); which goes to directly supporting those in immediate need of medical supplies, food, water, shelter, and more.

We thank you for your support in advance if you choose to purchase this special bundle; which is helping those who need it most. You can purchase the Humble Bundle here.
