Talia Collins Ltd is raising funds for Turkey Mozaik Foundation because helpless families need us, every second counts!
We are fundraising for the Turkey Mozaik Foundation (UK charity reg. 1174968) to support the Kahramanmaras Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund. We are deeply saddened by the news of the major earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 which hit Gaziantep/Kahramanmaras provinces at 04:17 am (01:17 GMT) on 6th February 2023, and affected at least 10 provinces in southern Turkey.
Turkey Mozaik Foundation will send all donations to local civil society organisations working on the ground to provide immediate relief and medium to long term recovery to survivors of the earthquake.
- Needs Map (İhtiyaç Haritası)
- TOKTUT (Toktutmak Elimizde Derneği - TOKTUT)
- AKUT (Search And Rescue Association (Arama Kurtarma Derneği - AKUT)
Needs Map will assess the needs on the ground through fieldwork in coordination with public institutions, and deliver emergency needs (winter clothes, heaters, blankets, sanitary pads, diapers, clean water, and tents) to the survivors.
TOKTUT will deliver emergency food packages containing ready-to-eat meals to the survivors in coordination with the relevant public institutions.
AKUT will use the grant support for its urgent equipment needs which will be used in search and rescue efforts in the region affected by the earthquake.
While the aftermath of this tragic event is still being assessed, we know that thousands of buildings have collapsed and the death toll is rising as powerful and aftershock earthquakes are continuously hitting the region. Turkiye issued a level-4 alarm, which includes an international call for help. Many organisations are now mobilised to provide immediate relief in the form of food, shelter, water, and medicine to to help the areas that were hit by the massive earthquake.
The region is also affected by extreme freezing weather conditions which presents additional challenges to the survivors and rescue teams.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to all who have lost loved ones or have been affected by the earthquake.
Thanks in advance for your generous contributions to our campaign. We will keep you informed with updates. We have friends and family on the ground in Gaziantep who are updating us daily & doing their best to help.
