Eid Gifts for Syria and Turkey
This Eid, we wanted to do something different. Alhamdulilah we've been blessed with so much. We have our family, loving friends, a comfortable home, plentiful toys, and security. We wanted to share the joy of Eid by directing any Eidi we get towards our brothers and sisters in Syria who are in terrific need.
Islamic Relief Canada's Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal
Deadly earthquakes struck Southern Turkey and Northern Syria
The Turkey Syria earthquake from February 6 has caused extensive damage across multiple cities and towns. Compounded by the recent earthquake on February 20, even more people and infrastructure have been buried under the rubble, and rescue operations have resumed in a desperate bid to save lives.
Over 50,000 people have been confirmed dead across both Turkey and Syria, with a total of 24 million people impacted by the earthquake. Time is of critical essence for those impacted by the earthquake. International aid is needed now in order to reach and save as many lives as possible.
