UCSD Turkish Students Earthquake Relief Fund

Tax deductible
We, the Turkish Student Association and Turkish Undergraduate Organization at UC San Diego, ask you to give generously and support efforts to help people who were directly impacted by the recent devastating earthquake.

Last Monday, February 6th, Turkey was struck by two deadly earthquakes of magnitudes 7.8 and 7.5 (USGS), the most catastrophic disaster to hit Turkey in decades. As of February 10, more than 19,000 people are confirmed dead, and the death toll is expected to rise. Not only that, more than 12,000 buildings have collapsed, and many of them are no longer inhabitable. Large areas spanning 10 cities are completely devastated with no access to food, electricity, or medical services. As a result, thousands were left homeless in extreme winter conditions and 14 million people are in need of urgent assistance.

Since the moment the earthquake hit, many local aid and support organizations have mobilized and are trying to rescue and provide aid to the earthquake victims. There is a pressing need for immediate actions and resources such as food, winter clothing, and shelter.

All proceeds go directly to the Turkish Philanthropy Funds, which works closely with the AHBAP Association, a well-known and reputable non-profit grasshopper organization, to support disaster victims. Even the smallest donation can make all the difference in the long and testing aftermath ahead of families, friends, and loved ones in Turkey.

We are grateful to all who extend a helping hand.
