Turkey / Syria Earthquake Appeal

Turkish Earthquake

I'm sure you will have all seen the news about the desperate situation in Turkey and Syria. Having lived in Adana (one of the cities badly affected) and still having many friends there, this is very close to my heart.

When I was approached by a member of the Rotary Club to form a joint appeal, I was very keen to do something, however small.

I very much remember how bitter the winters were there and can't begin to comprehend how difficult survival must be for those currently with no shelter.

The ShelterBox charity could help to provide some shelter for these people in crisis imminently. Haddenham and District Rotary club have already bought one box. If you would like to donate, please use the link below and as a team we could buy more and by doing this save lives.
