        On top of the devastating earthquakes, insufficient rescuers, shortage of heavy equipment, collapsed roads, freezing weather, and aftershocks made the rescue even harder. At this very time, organizations from all over the world offer much-needed help to the most stricken areas. Many countries have sent rescue teams and relief materials to Turkey and Syria. XGMA excavators are also present at the rescue site.
