Earthquake in Turkey

Following the recent disasters in Japan and Pakistan, Eastern Turkey is the latest region to have been hit by a violent earthquake. In Van province, hundreds of people have been killed, thousands injured and many more have lost their homes. Winter has already begun in this mountainous region, and they need help to get organised as quickly as possible. This is why, once again, we are calling on your generosity. We are starting a collection today, and the funds will be forwarded to our partner institutes in Turkey for redistribution to the appropriate agencies.
