As ESTRO President and on behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to share a message of solidarity with the radiation oncology communities impacted by the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday 6 February 2023. 

In these difficult times, our thoughts go to the victims of this devastating tragedy and to their families. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues active in the affected regions as well as with the patients who find themselves unable to access adequate cancer care. 

In the face of this crisis, and in respect of our values of togetherness and co-operation without borders, we encourage everyone who wishes to help local communities recover from this natural disaster to consider making a donation to the organizations that are currently managing emergency relief operations in the region*.
