ROOMS WITH NO WALLS Hope Trickling from Solidarity

After the Earthquakes on February 2023, the Turkish Medical Association quickly began working to solidarity with healthcare professionals affected by the earthquake and temporarily assigned to the region. TTB carried out reporting studies to observe the devastating effects of the earthquake, identify problems in the field of health, offer solutions and warn the public authority. TTB took action quickly on the morning of the first earthquake at 4.17 on February 6, came together with other professional chambers, unions and non-governmental organizations and established the Earthquake Crisis Desk. It established coordination centers in provinces where medical chambers were not active enough due to destruction, and cooperated in order to reactivate medical chambers affected by the earthquake and to create shelter conditions. In provinces where there were difficulties in the organization of health services, volunteers provided temporary health services to the citizens, together with the healthcare workers and their colleagues who did not give up providing health services despite being affected by the earthquake.

The documentary ROOMS WITH NO WALLS Hope Trickling from Solidarity tells the story of medical solidarity organized by the Turkish Medical Association, the doctors who volunteered in the region, and the medical chambers in the region with collective labor after the Turkey-Syria Earthquakes.
