More than 41,000 people have now been confirmed dead after twin earthquakes hit northern Syria and southern Turkiye on 6 February.
Despite dwindling hope that there are more survivors, a 42-year-old woman was pulled out from under a collapsed building in Kahramanmaras ten days after the earthquake.
The UN has said that more than seven million children are affected by the earthquake across the two countries. Around 4.6 million of whom are in Turkiye and 2.5 million in northwest Syria, where many are living in tents or out in the open after their apartment buildings collapsed from the force of the earthquakes.
The earthquake is now the deadliest disaster in Turkiye in 100 years.
