Building Happiness: BTF's Transformative Aid for Earthquake-Impacted Education

By Ozgun Turkoz | Assistant Specialist at Program Management

Dear Friends,   

On February 6, 2023, BTF swiftly initiated a grassroots emergency response, channeling monetary aid from international sources to alleviate the immediate local distress and hardship.

Through our efforts, we prioritized reaching out to children and schools affected by the earthquake, aiming to ensure uninterrupted access to education by addressing the resource deficiencies caused by the seismic event. By providing necessary support, we worked towards empowering our children to continue their educational journeys despite the challenges imposed by the earthquake they endured.

4KIDS SET DELIVERIES

In our efforts to support uninterrupted education despite the lack of resources in the earthquake-affected area, we have sent 113 BTF4Kids sets to schools and reached 17.000 students. These sets will enable students to continue their education with tools such as musical instruments, maths/sports/art/science materials, educational toys, books, and stationery supplies.

Additionally, we have distributed 2000 bags with stationary and school supplies as April 23 gifts to students who survived the earthquake and settled in container homes/tents. This initiative ensures that these students have access to essential course materials throughout the academic year.

With school closings and the transition to online education, we delivered 105 tablets to students. 

TOGETHER BUILDING HAPPINESS

  • Teacher Mehmet Ilter works in Kahramanmaras, one of the cities hit hardest by the earthquake.

"BTF provided our students in Kahramanmaras with 504 sets of school bags. I distributed these bag sets to the students residing in the tent cities. I was impressed by the high quality of the products in the bags and the careful consideration given to hygiene materials. Moreover, the inclusion of storybooks that resonated with our children's interests was greatly appreciated. The support from BTF not only ensured our students had essential school supplies but also brought excitement to their lives through engaging reading materials.

 I want to express my gratitude to BTF and its volunteers. As a teacher who has personally experienced the loss of numerous relatives and friends due to the devastating earthquake, I want to extend my appreciation on behalf of myself, my students, and my entire city. BTF has been a constant source of support, reaching out to us from the beginning of the earthquake, demonstrating genuine concern for our well-being, and assisting us in accessing the necessary aid and assistance. Your unwavering commitment and care have made a meaningful difference in our lives, and we are forever grateful for your presence during this challenging time."

LOVE grows when we SHARE…..
