Christ the Redeemer Statue Illuminated in Memory of Earthquake Victims

The statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was illuminated in memory of those who lost their lives in the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. Messages were also included in the statue, which was clad in Turkish and Syrian flags.

Thousands of people died in the earthquakes that occurred on February 6 in the Pazarcik and Elbistan districts of Kahramanmaras.

After the earthquakes, in which thousands of people were injured, Turkey became one heart.

They Didn’t Keep Silence on the Disaster of the Century

Search and rescue efforts, which continued for 12 days, were replaced by debris removal.

While there are still areas where miracles are expected, the world did not remain silent against the disaster of the century.

While many countries supported Turkey by sending teams, those who came saved dozens of lives under the collapsed buildings.

Message with Flags

The great disaster also resonated in Brazil.

In this context, the statue of Christ the Redeemer in the city of Rio de Janeiro was illuminated with Turkish and Syrian flags and messages of support in memory of those who lost their lives in the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.
