We are all shocked by the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria as the number of dead and injured continues to grow.
Below are some options on ways to help. There are many ways of supporting those in their time of need. There have been numerous communications and the options are summarised below:
This link details what Rotary and some of our partners are doing.
Immediate support can be provided directly to Rotary District 2430 where the disaster took place. The 2430 DG, Esme Ozturk, and his team can make the local decisions that provide the immediate need including blankets, clothing, hygienic items, food, water etc. locally and deliver them to the affected areas with the help of local Rotarians. Online donations can be made at: https://rotary2430.org.tr/deprem-bagisi
Rotary Great Britain and Ireland Disaster Recovery Trust has launched the Turkey & Syria Disaster appeal.
Contributions received will help affected communities in Turkey & Syria once the rubble has been cleared.
If you would like to support the Disaster Recovery Trust (charity number 1119688), you can:
Donate to the Turkey & Syria Disaster appeal via our GiveStar online payment option
Send a cheque – Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland Disaster Recovery Trust, Kinwarton Road, Alcester, B49 6PB.
Contact the Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland Finance department for bank transfer information.
Rotary partners are also on the ground assessing what support can be given. Details can be found here:
Shelter Box https://shelterbox.org/
Water Survival Box http://www.watersurvivalbox.org/
Disaster Aid UK https://disasteraiduk.org/
Details will follow on Disaster Response Grants and Global Grants, perhaps between Districts where we can have so much more effect. This is likely to be similar to what is happening in Ukraine,
We know that Rotary clubs will be out in their communities hosting collections in support of earthquake victims. We have therefore created a set of resources which may assist you in those activities.
