A catastrophic disaster strikes the human beings, the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The images of destruction are horrific and do not let one rest. Our thoughts are with the people in the disaster area who survived the earthquake, but now have to live on in great hardship and severely traumatized.
BPW International has 6 clubs in Turkey and 1 club in Syria. BPW Club Adana is in the region of the earthquake. We are in contact with the Club representatives and working with them on the Project Container Village. Read more here and help us to realize these container houses for those directly affected in rapid emergency relief.
Please donate to our Donations Account "BPW International Donation for Earthquake" which is open since 10 February 2023. Thank you all for your generosity.
