Tell Atchana Earthquake Disaster Relief

Donation protected
The communities living in Hatay (Türkiye) have been fundamental to the success of the Tell Atchana/Ancient Alalakh excavations project for decades. They have welcomed and supported hundreds of international archaeologists and students, and they have become part of our lives. They are our families and our friends and they now need our help!

The goal of this fundraiser is to directly help people connected to the excavation and their families recover from the disaster. The money will be distributed in consultation with our local team who know where it is most needed. We are currently using our excavation compound to provide shelter to some people who have lost their homes and your contribution will help us pay for generators, water and food. Some of your money will also go towards scholarships to help archaeology students who are severely affected by the disaster.

We will update this page with more details when we have more information.

Please share this appeal with friends, family, and colleagues, and if you can, please consider also donating to local and international disaster relief funds.

Natural disasters don't care about national borders. Please also consider helping communities in Syria by donating to campaigns active there.
