Update from Türkiye: A Promising Start—and So Much More To Do

After an initial exploration and rapid evaluation of how we could help on the ground in Türkiye in the wake of February’s devastating earthquake, we quickly set to work.

Within two weeks of arriving, we’d partnered with local organisations and started delivering essential hygiene items to those in greatest need.

We received a heartwarming show of support and have almost met our fundraising target, which will allow us to serve 5,000 people with essential hygiene items people by 9th April.

In the past 10 days we have been able to access more rural communities and we’ve noticed that needs are very different. We are the first aid workers to arrive in a number of villages, where people are asking for food essentials—and Ramadan is about to begin.

Now that we’ve made local connections, we are in a position to provide ongoing support to people who desperately need it—and that’s where you come in.

In order to provide essential food and hygiene items support to those in the the worst affected areas, we need to raise £30,000 by 9th April.

By making a donation today, you can reach out and help people as they start rebuilding their lives.

The tragedy is huge. But as a small organisation, we know that your caring gesture will be felt by the people here in Türkiye.
