Rescue diary in Türkiye: Love knows no boundaries as rescue efforts continue


Search and rescue dog Lucky has been working tirelessly for over three days. To ensure it performs to the best of its ability, we have been providing Lucky with the necessary water and food during breaks, while Lucky’s handler, Gao Zhijiang, is always by its side to offer support and comfort. Lucky is not just an important partner for the team, but also a valued “comrade-in-arms"!

During today’s rescue operations, a Turkish rescuer who was assisting with clearing the debris suffered an injury to his foot. Our part-time medic quickly cleaned and dressed his wound.

Our rescue mission in Türkiye has received support and care from local power plants, Chinese corporations, and overseas Chinese. Two women from China’s Liaoning and Fujian provinces wake up early every morning to prepare meals for us. Every rescue operation relies not only on the tireless efforts of the front-line rescuers, but also on the great support from logistics and information personnel.

Every person’s contribution is like a little drop in a mighty ocean of love. When people from all over the world join hands in the battle against the disaster, we transcend language barriers and nationalities.
