Support Organizations for Earthquakes in Turkey
As Turkish university students studying in the Netherlands, we are devastated to hear about the huge impact of the earthquake happened and continuing to happen. On February 6th, at 4:17 am an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 occurred and has been felt throughout the country as well as severely impacting surrounding countries as well. At 13:24, another earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5 occurred making several other buildings collapse. Over 40.000 people have reportedly been killed, and over 90.000 other people are injured. There are still some regions that are desperately waiting to get out from under the wreck.
On February 20th, another earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 occurred and has been felt in several regions but mostly in the affected area. Remainings of buildings as well as numerous buildings have reportedly collapsed.
Being away from our home country during this period, we decided to set up a fundraiser to help numerous people and organizations dealing with the earthquake and those who are in need in these poor weather conditions. The main supplies that are high in demand by the organizations are:
winter clothes, blankets, tents, hygienic pads, shoes, socks, sanitary products, empty boxes, heaters (pocket heater, portable heating), canned food, snacks, sleeping bags etc.
All money that will be raised will be transferred to charities and organizations:
AHBAP: A local voluntary network currently helping those who are in need.
Remember: 1 euro = 20.22 Turkish Lira; therefore every donation counts.
All bank deposits from this fund will be transparently posted on @elasenbak and @zeynepgulalp on Instagram.
