While the long road to recovery has yet to begin, time is running out for potential survivors as the rescue effort grinds into its third day in 10 cities in Turkey which are struck by two devastating earthquakes (7.7 and 7.6 magnitude).

More than 6,000 people have died and thousands of others were injured in the earthquakes, which struck when people were in bed sleep. First responders are scrambling to rescue people trapped under toppled buildings.

The earthquakes affected around 15 million people in the region. So millions of people are in need of help.
