Help earthquake-affected people in Syria and Turkey Fund
On February 6th, at 04:17, an earthquake of 7.8 magnitudes occurred in the Pazarcık district of Kahramanmaraş, Southeastern Turkey, close to the border with Syria. The quake was felt strongly in Kahramanmaraş and the Eastern, Southeastern, Mediterranean, Central Anatolia, and Black Sea regions. In addition, several Syrian cities, already severely affected by 12 years of war, such as Idlib, Latakia, and Aleppo, were also hit.
The initial aim of the campaign is to support the Bulgarian volunteer teams going to help on the ground.
At the moment, we also work with three local organizations validated by CAF International:
Temel Ihtiyac Dernegi (TIDER - Basic Needs Association) - A food bank in Turkey that supplies food and water to the victims.
For the victims in Syria, we will direct donations to MULHAM Gönüllüler YARDIM Dernegi (Molham Volunteering Team) - a student volunteer organization that started an emergency fund to support the victims and hundreds of volunteers are helping on the ground to rescue people in ruins.
Toplum Gonulluleri Vakfi - a network of 16,000 currently enrolled volunteers. The funds will cover their needs when working in the field.
