Appeal for Izmir earthquake in Turkey.
Help us provide warm clothes, blankets and heaters for those who are trying to rebuild their lives after Izmir earthquake
“We now need a relatively small amount of money in order for us to continue our programmes and give hope to those who are trying to rebuild their lives as we move towards winter.” says Nadir Nadhim, the director of Caritas Turkey.
The 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck just off the coast of Turkey on 30th October in the South Aegean Sea. Reports say 114 people died and another 1035 were injured. The earthquake was felt in the surrounding countries of Greece, Bulgaria and Macedonia.
Caritas’s programme in Izmir will assist 2,500 people in coping with their losses due to the earthquake and help them face the rapidly approaching winter. The €52,000 programme has already so far received €20,000 funding, which leaves a shortfall of just €32,000.
