Thank you for supporting TPF's Deep Poverty Fund!

By Pinar Ozyurek | Donor Relations Lead

Dear TPF Supporters,

This year, on Feb 6th, we were deeply shaken by the news of two powerful earthquakes in Türkiye. The earthquakes that took place within a span of just nine hours caused extensive damage and loss of life in 11 cities located in the Southeast region of Türkiye. The earthquake had a profound impact on the people of Türkiye, affecting an estimated 15.2 million individuals. About 4 million of this population are children. The United Nations has reported that around 1.5 million people were left homeless as a result of the disaster. At least 3 million individuals were compelled to relocate to other parts of the country due to the extensive destruction in the affected cities.About 1.6 million people live in irregular spaces.

With the devastating effects of the earthquake, the standard of living of many people has fallen dramatically. Many people don't have access to adequate nutrition opportunities. Thanks to donors like YOU, TPF granted $42K to Needs Map to provide supply of food packages for the victims of the disaster, which is one of the biggest needs in earthquake regions from the first day. A total of locally sourced 2,080 food boxes (consisting of rice, chickpeas, beans, pasta, sugar, salt, etc.) were purchased for ~7K people living in tent cities in Hatay and Adiyaman.

Access to adequate and safe food is very important. In this direction TPF, together with Needs Map will continue to support the access of people in need in earthquake regions to adequate and safe food and will try to eliminate the problems that may be caused by malnutrition and consumption of unsafe food.

Once again, thank you making an impact in many people's lives and choosing TPF as your partner in philanthropy!

 

With heartfelt gratitude,

 

Team TPF
