Donate to emergency relief and recovery in Turkey and Syria

On February 6, two powerful earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria, killing and injuring thousands, and destroying homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure.

Thousands of people are facing an urgent need for food, shelter, and water. Your donation via GlobalGiving will help to meet those needs as well as support the efforts of local nonprofits who may be better-positioned to respond to any additional community-needs while also working toward long-term recovery.
