Families impacted by 7.8m Earthquake in Turkey

My name is Cagri and my family and I are one of the many families impacted by the catastrophic earthquake in Turkey. We live in the United States and have a roof over our head, a warm bed to sleep in and food on the table while many families are now without in Turkey and Syria. This earthquake has shaken our family to the core, with more than 50+ family members living in Hatay, Antakya this catastrophe has left 16 members of our family trapped under collapsed buildings. These buildings aren't just retail and corporate buildings. But they are homes, homes of over thousands of people. Homes that they have created, built and raised families in. Homes that not only have little feet running through them but the young, elderly, parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends..who have spent their whole lives building this home to have it crumble and fall on top of all their hopes and dreams. The purpose of this GoFundme is to be able to help as many families including our own with food, shelter, water and supplies. To help them rebuild what they have lost. We have family and first responders that are digging people out of the rubble and they have gone two nights with no sleep tirelessly helping to save whoever they can. Thank you to everyone who has helped and is helping. May God protect us all.

Unfortunately we have lost 9 of the 16 that were trapped under the debris currently. May their beautiful souls rest in peace. I love you always cousins.
