CALL FOR HELP TO THE VICTIMS OF TURKEY AND SYRIA EARTHQUAKE
This letter has been authored by Crossborder Jurists.
Crossborder Jurists Association, based in Cologne (Germany), is a non-political and a non-profit association founded by Turkish jurists aiming to combat human rights violations and assist their victims worldwide, particularly in Turkey.
As it is known, on February 6, 2023, a catastrophic earthquake struck the southeastern part of Turkey and northern Syria, where more than 13 million people live. The full recovery of the damages would take many years as the seriousness of the destruction of the earthquake and its deadly impacts on densely populated areas.
More than 1000 people, the relatives of our members and former judges and prosecutors living in the earthquake area were directly or indirectly damaged by this earthquake. We have launched this aid campaign to meet the short and medium-term needs of these people and other victims that may reach tens of thousands.
The purpose of the campaign is to share and recover some of the pain of the victims. The identified needs will be provided to the victims, with whom we are in direct contact, in order to help them to achieve a new start in their lives that are deeply affected by the destructive earthquake.
We will transparently carry out the process of delivering the collected aid to the recipients and share all relevant information with our donors for ensuring their contributions are well-handed and well-used in healing the wounds of the victims.
We hope that you will support our campaign.
As another option in our campaign in the provision of aid, we may establish a direct link between the donors and the victims of the earthquake. Upon your request, we may act as an intermediary to present you with one of the victims and coordinate the direct delivery of the aid that is offered by you. This would directly allow you to see the effects of your contribution to the life of one of the affected victims.
In the scope of the project, we are sincerely ready to respond to all your requests and questions regarding the actual situation of the victims and the damage caused by the earthquake. You may get in contact with persons, whose names are written below, for any matter that is pertinent to this campaign.
