Earthquake Relief for Ghufran's Family
Turkey's worst earthquake in nearly a century has killed nearly fifty thousand people, flattened entire city blocks, wrecked businesses and upended lives. Response efforts are shifting to coping with the aftermath and providing shelter, food and medical help to survivors.
One of BPB’s families has relatives who were devastated by the earthquake. We are raising money to help them through these difficult times.
Ghufran’s mother, four sisters and 12 nieces and nephews had to evacuate their crumbling building in the middle of the night after the earthquake struck where they lived in Kahramanmaraş, Turkey. Luckily, they were unharmed, but were left out on the street with no shelter, food, or clothing. They managed to get to Mersin, Turkey, where they are staying with friends.
It is unknown how long it will be before the family can think about moving back to the city from which they fled. BPB has already raised $1500 and ask you for your help in raising enough money to make sure that they can get everything they need for the foreseeable future.
