CHP PM Member, Tekirdağ Deputy Dr. Candan Yüceer visited Topraktepe Neighborhood in the Doğanşehir District of Malatya, which was affected by the Kahramanmaraş-centered earthquakes.
Making investigations in the neighborhood that was heavily damaged in the earthquake, Dr. Yucer said:
“Malatya Doğanşehir is one of the regions most affected by the earthquake. Especially in Erkenek, Topraktepe, many buildings were destroyed. 11 people lost their lives in Topraktepe. Unfortunately, two of them burned to death. As everywhere else, the search and rescue efforts for debris started too late. We have toured tent cities. 18 tents have been set up, but there are tents, no showers, no toilets; There is a toilet, no water. Serious problems continue on the 16th day of the earthquake.
THE PROBLEM OF HOUSING, WARMING, FOOD, HYGIENE STILL CONTINUES
We visited the whole neighborhood in Topraktepe, there is almost no house that has not been demolished. The houses that were not destroyed were also heavily damaged. They are waiting for help, they want a shower. They do not have shoes on their feet, they are afraid to enter their house. The problems in all provinces are the same at the moment. In this neighborhood, the number of debris is high, so the problem of sheltering, heating, food and hygiene still continues.
We need to bandage our wounds. But first of all, we need to learn and take precautions. We always say this. It is not easy to remove this debris, buildings should not become like this. For us, there should be living spaces where we can shelter and live safely. For this, the most important thing is to learn lessons and take precautions.”
