Go Dharmic, a UK-based charity is continuing its efforts to raise funds and extend relief measures to earthquake-hit Turkey and Syria. The funds gathered by the charity will be used to purchase aid, support the victims in both countries and helping those who may be further displaced in Syria, a news release said.
"The situation in Turkey and Syria is apocalyptic. Every act of kindness and support makes a huge difference to families who have been devastated," said Hanuman Dass, Go Dharmic founder.
"With each piece of donation, we are delivering hope to move forward and letting the survivors know that the world cares and shares their pain. Hard-working civilians have become homeless overnight while the children are orphaned," said a volunteer from Turkey, Onur Kaygisiz, who emphasized that the destruction is unimaginable.
"In the region, much-needed humanitarian aid passed out may not only offer a little comfort but also hope for a brighter future. With each piece of donation we are delivering hope to move forward and letting the survivors know that the world cares and shares their pain," he added.
According to the release, Go Dharmic will raise its initial goal to US$18,000 in the coming weeks. The organization noted with anguish that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria caused widespread devastation.
