Turkey/Syria Relief Efforts


Please donate to the following organization to help the people of Turkey and Syria

Turkish Consulate, NY

The Turkish government is no longer accepting clothing donations, and will only be accepting new, unused, donations for all other items. The Turkish government is seeking the following items: shipping containers, portable restrooms, portable beds, disaster tents (4x4= 16m2 (172 sq ft) and larger), blankets, and medical supplies. Donations will be accepted at 46th Street and First Avenue between 9:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. Please contact the Turkish consulate in York by calling +1 (212) 351-7200 or emailing, to coordinate the donation of large items or any medical supplies.

Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders teams have already begun working in the affected areas, including at “impacted and overwhelmed” health facilities in northern Syria. The humanitarian medical NGO said its teams are reinforcing and supporting local medical teams, as well as donating emergency medical and essential life kits.

Turkish Red Crescent Teams — part of the International Red Cross — in Turkey and Syria are providing hot meals and drinks, shipping needed blood and plasma into affected areas and providing survivors with psychosocial support, the American Red Cross said. The Turkish Red Crescent said it has mobilized 77 catering vehicles, five mobile kitchens and nearly 2,000 tents.
