A devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey on Sunday, Oct 23, 2011, causing damage and causalities. Hundreds of people have died, and even more have been left homeless.
Kizilay is providing needed supplies, including tents, food, heaters, blankets, and more to survivors in the effected area. A team of over 120 people are already at the disaster zone distributing these supplies.
These funds will support Kizilay through Turkish Philanthropy Funds to provide immediate and longer term support, including distribution of necessary supplies and psychosocial support to survivors.
