The recent earthquakes have left over 20 million people in desperate need of your help. Over 50,000 have died in Turkey and Syria and survivors need food, water, housing and medical care. The Rotary Foundation has established the Turkey/Syria Disaster Response Fund to address those needs by funding projects headed by our fellow Rotarians. All funds donated to this fund from now through March 31st will go directly to support disaster grants to meet those needs in those geographic areas. Only after those needs have been met will any surplus contributions be used elsewhere.
Please contribute at https://my.rotary.org/donate. Select “Featured Causes” from the top menu, then “Turkey/Syria Disaster Response Fund” in the right-hand column.
Action steps you can take NOW to help support communities in need:
- Donate to the Turkey/Syria Disaster Response Fund;
- Start an earthquake relief fundraiser using Raise for Rotary;
- Stay informed and share information about how Rotary members are helping.
