Türkiye Aid Fund
7 February 2023
The unprecedented devastation suffered in the southeastern part of Türkiye has prompted the Skål International Executive Committee to initiate an emergency Aid Fund to send much-needed assistance to the thousands of families left homeless.
The dimensions of the earthquake, on an area of 300+ km diameter affecting 10 cities over 12 million inhabitants is going beyond imagination.
Thousands of victims under 11.000 collapsed buildings are waiting to be rescued, as aftershocks continue. Survivors are homeless under severe weather conditions with rain and snow, as number of casualties continue climbing.
In this respect, we have been informed that our fellow Skålleagues of the Skål International Cukurova club, located in the middle of the affected area, thank God are well but a number of them have lost their homes, friends and relatives.
We encourage all Skålleagues to join in sending your donations to this much-needed humanitarian cause through the GoFundMe platform for online payment or by bank transfer:
