As the tragic stories come out of Turkey and Northern Syria, TVN has watched in horror at the devastation and human toll caused by the earthquakes and after shocks in the south-east region of Turkey (affecting at least 10 cities) and Northern Syria. Here are links to the latest news stories. (BBC, CNN) . Relief agencies are reporting up to 33,000 killed and tens of thousands injured. And these figures continue to rise. We hope you will join us in providing some support to the victims. We have reached out to our members in the area about organizations that we can support.

Turkish Red Crescent - deployed and serving the victims (local national organization)

International Federation of Red Cross and Crescent - deployed and serving the victims (international organization).

Doctors without Borders

A Charity supporting the non-humans

Or you can donate here to the Tower PayPal with a note that it goes toward Turk Kazilay (Turkish Red Crescent) and we will take care of it from there.

Our goal is to raise $500 in two weeks. If you have the means to help out, please join us in our charity drive. (You can let us know privately, publicly, or not all what you donated and we will track it here).

20230215 ETA: We are holding steady at $1005 raised. Our new goal is $1500! Can we meet it by 21 Feb?
20230220 ETA: We have generously raised $1005 of our $1500 fundraising goal which ends tomorrow 21 Feb.


Also consider visibly showing your support. We will have sigs and badges available soon. (ETA: Here they are Sigs and Badges).

Every little bit helps.

Thank you for organizing this. I’ve donated via the Finnish Red Cross to support those in need in Türkiye and Syria.

Perhaps I set the bar too low? We are already at $550 in TVNer donations. TVN, you are amazing. If you have the means, please consider contributing. We will keep it open until 21 Feb. Much love, always.

(Original post updated).

I thought I would post this here, it's a BBC article outlining some of the ways people in the UK are helping. It's such a vast disaster that help in all forms looks welcomed.

I've updated our total (we are at $951). We have more time to donate. Our hearts break as the tragic stories continue to unfold in Turkey and Syria. Your generosity is appreciated and needed.

Another update on total raised. We are now at $1005, so we have to move our goal posts again to $1500. Also, we have moved the additional links to other relief agencies and supporting organizations into the main post so nothing gets lost. (If you let me know your donation amount, I will include it in the Tower total, keeping it anonymous.).

I wish I had better news, but the reported deaths keep rising...we are now up over 33,000 dead and countless injured, homeless, cold, and hungry. Your generosity matters, makes a difference, and is immensely appreciated.

20230215 ETA: We are holding steady at $1005 raised. Our new goal is $1500! Can we meet it by 21 Feb?

Another aftershock today of 6.3 struck today and the death toll is now at 46,000. Rescue efforts continue and any support is desperately needed.
