I have been getting a lot of questions about how to support those impacted by the devastating quake in Turkey and Syria. We have also recently shared information about Shelter Box, a partner of Rotary, through our website and enews. Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions. 

Best wishes,

DG Aimee

I am sending this e-mail on behalf of DG Emre Ozturk of D2430 – Turkey. This is PDG Canan Ersoz; I am serving as DRFCC in D2430.

As you all know, south east part of Turkey was hit by a big earthquake on Feb 6th, 2023 early in the morning while everybody was sleeping. The earthquake region is in D2430. This natural disaster caused many deaths and the property loss is unexplainable in the south and southeast regions of Turkey. Many buildings, homes, hospitals, schools and government offices were severely damaged. Many main roads collapsed. Thousands of people are homeless, injured and hungry.

Thankfully, Rotary world has been trying to help and has been showing their support. All of DRFCCs of respected Districts have received an e-mail from me five  days ago. Some districts responded immediately. Some did not. So, we are reaching out to you to kindly invite to join our efforts to help recovery of the affected areas. If you already responded, sorry for repeating, then please, ignore this message.

Please, see below to decide what you can do:

1. Cash donations to D2430’s Earthquake account (with this money we purchase most needed items such as blankets, clothing, hygienic items, food, water etc. locally and deliver them to the affected areas with the help of local Rotarians):
