It's been a week since that massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake caused devastation and death in Turkey and Syria. As I write this blog, the death toll is over 36,000 with tens of thousands injured. When disasters occur here in the US, we know where and how to donate. This is different. It happened in a foreign country. So what are our options?
We have several, actually:
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
- Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations
- Syrian American Medical Society
- Doctors Without Borders
- UN Crisis Relief
Thank you for caring.
