Turkish Philanthropy Funds Launches its Türkiye Earthquake Relief Fund

NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Turkish Philanthropy Funds has launched its Türkiye Earthquake Relief Fund on February 6th, 2023. The fund was created as an immediate response to the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Gaziantep and its neighboring cities on February 6th at 4:17 AM local time.

We commit to transparent reporting and will update you on how we've used donations to this fund.

The earthquake was felt by at least ten surrounding cities, and more than 3,500 deaths were reported, and the toll was expected to increase. Our thoughts are with the injured and the families of the victims, and we extend our deepest condolences to all families who lost their loved ones.

Turkish Philanthropy Funds is working closely with our partners on the ground, analyzing the need to provide immediate relief to survivors. Since establishing the fund at 6 AM EST, TPF has raised over $450,000 and is working closely with organizations on the field to distribute funds and address urgent needs. 100% of donations to this fund will support TPF's Türkiye Earthquake Relief Fund and recovery efforts. We will monitor the impact on affected communities and work with partners at Afet Platformu to allocate funds to where they're needed most. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted partner organizations in the impacted area(s).

TPF is the most reliable and trustworthy foundation serving the Turkish-American community. We are committed to transparency and low overhead. When disasters strike, TPF quickly delivers funds to its partners on the ground that are best suited to provide relief and long-term recovery. Our disaster relief funds have been recommended by many international organizations and local Turkish-American organizations.
