Dublin Kendo Supports the Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal

Dublin Kendo Supports the Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal

Dear Budoka,

As I am sure you are all aware there is a humanitarian crisis in Turkey and Syria, with at the time of writing, over 33,000 people dead, as a result of a devastating earthquake. The death toll is expected to rise, and the number of people suffering, displaced, and in need is incalculable.

Dublin Kendo is proud to have members from Turkey, and we have a long history of supporting Syrian refugees. We have trained and competed with our Turkish Budoka brothers and sisters on many occasions and they need our support at this dire hour.

We have consulted our Turkish members and have compiled a list of trustworthy, non-governmental charities and aid bodies that will get resources directly to those affected. If you are able, please consider donating what you can to help:

  1. AHBAP: A non-profit cooperative group of philanthropists led by Rock Star Haluk Levent. https://ahbap.org/disasters-turkey
  2. Red Cross: https://donate.redcross.ie/earthquakesemergency/~my-donation
  3. Unicef
  4. WFP

If you have not already done so, please also consider reaching out to your friends who may be affected by this situation check in on them and their familes. Knowing they have your support and that you are thinking of them can be a great comfort in such distressing times.

Thank you for any support you can offer.
