ESC message of support for Syria and Türkiye

Syria and Türkiye - Our hearts are with you

On behalf of everyone at the European Society of Cardiology, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the destruction and terrible loss of life in Türkiye and the Syrian Arab Republic brought about by the earthquake. 

To our friends and colleagues in the Turkish Society of Cardiology and the Syrian Cardiovascular Association and to all those facing the unimaginable loss of their loved ones, homes and entire communities, our thoughts are with you. 

To all those who are on the front lines – healthcare professionals, emergency workers and everyone contributing to the rescue efforts – we wish you courage and strength in the days, weeks and months ahead. 

Franz Weidinger, 
ESC President 2022-2024, on behalf of the ESC Board
