Tayinat Community Disaster Relief Fund

Donation protected
In the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake that has devastated southern Turkey -
and the widespread destruction that has ensued in the Hatay region specifically - many
have been contacting us for information, and how they might help.

All funds donated to this campaign will go to support our dear colleagues and friends in
the Tayinat community who have been directly affected by the earthquake. 100% of
your support will be used specifically and entirely to help those families who have lost
their homes, their possessions, and their livelihoods, by providing immediate relief. We
are working closely with experienced and trusted colleagues on the ground to decide
where the greatest needs are, and how best to distribute the funds.

All expenditures will be accounted for following established Tayinat Archaeological
Project (TAP) reporting procedures.

GoFundMe donations in this situation are considered a personal gift, and thus will not
receive a tax receipt. Note that funds will be processed in USD.

Your generosity is MUCH appreciated – we need to pull together as a community to
help our friends on the ground in Turkey. Every gift helps. Thank you. Teşekkürler!
