Earthquake Recovery Gift Cards for Surviving Families
Since February 6, when the fated powerful earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria, millions of lives have been devastated. Over 50,000 are confirmed dead and millions more have lost everything they owned. This region will likely spend many years recovering from the damage.
As we meet survivors to help them with urgent needs like food, blankets and water–one thing becomes very clear–there is no “one-size-fits-all” recovery solution. Some families have lost everything, down to a change of clothes and shoes. Others have moved in with relatives and need extra sleeping mattresses and blankets. Another family may have lost their mobile phone and desperately need a way to communicate with work, family and friends. So, Mercy-USA is doing what’s most needed for these earthquake survivors…we’re giving families the ability to purchase what their family needs and not distribute what we think they should have.
