Ukrainian Rescuers Fly in From War Zone to Save Lives in Turkey
The Ukrainian rescue team was sent to Turkey to search for survivors in buildings flattened by two massive earthquakes and perform first aid. They joined rescue workers from Turkey and around the world, including Russia. The team includes specialists in search and rescue operations, doctors, dog handlers, and firefighters, and they built tents near the Turkish city of Antakya close to the Syrian border to provide emergency shelter and set up generators for those left homeless by the earthquakes.
