Almost six weeks after the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, UNICEF director Suzanne Laszlo is visiting the affected Turkish towns of Gaziantep and Kahramanmaras. There she sees what kind of traces the deadliest earthquake has left since 1939. Children have suffered trauma for the rest of their lives.
Whole neighbourhoods are gone. The disaster area is bigger than it could have imagined. Buildings have been wiped out. There are also many houses where the side is knocked out. They look like doll houses, with a kitchen, a sofa and things. The people who lived there had a normal life, but overnight they have nothing left.
The people in the area are still very scared. There are constant aftershocks. Even in children you can see the fear when they hear earthquake sounds.
