Five months after the disaster, some 1.6 million people live in tent cities without sanitation in Turkiye, HIA said. The organisation is also providing psychologists and animators for group activities to improve the psycho-social status of the displaced people, who are expected to be forced to live in temporary housing for years, the statement said.

HIA has been present at the site since the 7.8 earthquake hit on February 6, the statement said.
