We ask for your Solidarity with those effected by the earthquake in Türkiye and Syria

On February 6, a multitude of 7.7 and 7.6 consecutive earthquakes in 9 hours in Kahramanmaraş caused a devastating destructions in Southeast Türkiye and Northern Syria.

We are sad and in solidarity with people who lost their families, friends and homes in these disasters and we would like to draw your attention that it is important to support people in need.

There are several independent organisations in Türkiye and Syria, which are working in the field and helping people to survive during these harsh winter conditions. Within 9 hours, millions of people became homeless. So every little penny would help to support their current temporary shelters.

Here are some organisations to support. The list is collected by Collective Cukurcuma, a close friend to one of our team members, Tuçe Erel.
