Days after a 7.8 and 7.5 magnitude earthquake ravaged Turkey and Syria, the calls for support continue to grow. Over 40,000 people perished in the devastation, while hundreds of thousands remain homeless and injured. At times like these it is crucial that we contribute to recovery efforts in Turkey and Syria. The lack of food, frigid conditions, and an overwhelming number of injuries will require a unified effort to overcome.
If you or someone you know is looking for ways to help those affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, consider donating to the following organizations.
International Rescue Committee
We at The Law Offices of James A. Welcome thank you in advance for supporting those impacted by the horrific natural disaster in Turkey and Syria. Before donating to any organization consider conducting adequate research. You may want to look into whether they are for-profit and what percent of your money goes toward administrative or support efforts. Finally, ensure your money is going where you want it to go. If you want to donate specifically to Turkey and Syria choose an organization that is committing the funds donated to recovery efforts in both countries.
