Critical warning from AKUT: “Do not lose hope; we still have more work to do!”

AKUT Search and Rescue Association President Zeynep Yosun Akverdi: “Critical hours for the lives trapped in the rubble have now begun. These hours are both life-threatening and dangerous because hope begins to run out, but we must overcome this danger… In AKUT, we always say in our trainings, ‘You will perform rescues during these hours that you may never forget for the rest of your life.’ For example, in this major disaster, we will never forget the rescue of Efe baby and his mother in Adiyaman after 47 hours, Bekir Amca (Bekir Yildirim) at 71 hours in Gaziantep, and a Syrian mother and her three children after 83 hours. Also, after the rescue operations during the advanced hours of the earthquake, we really rest physically and mentally. We must never lose hope, there is still much to be done.”

AKUT Search and Rescue Association continues to increase the number of volunteers and the number of people rescued in the two earthquakes centered in Pazarcık and Elbistan districts of Kahramanmaraş. AKUT teams, who quickly coordinated since the first moment of the earthquake, are continuing their operations with more than 1,100 volunteers, including 30 teams in the field, 777 on site, and more than 300 at desk, as of 14:00 on February 10, 2023. In a statement made by the Association, it was stated that 151 people were rescued alive from the wreckage with the support of 4 search dogs. In the search and rescue operations, it was also reported that 180 lifeless bodies were recovered. Thus, AKUT has rescued 331 people.
