Tzu Chi Charity Foundation provides relief aid to earthquake affected.

Since early morning, hundreds of families flocked to El-Menahil International School to receive the provided gift by Tzu Chi Charitable Foundation. Those families had been displaced from the cities after the devastating earthquake that struck about 10 Turkish cities, leaving unknown number of dead and injured

Earlier, the Tzu Chi Foundation launched a relief campaign for those affected who came to Istanbul, where volunteers monitored and registered more than 1,000 Syrian and Turkish affected families.

Affected families will receive valuable one-time aid including BIM cards and blankets, depending on the number of family members.

It is scheduled that a delegation of volunteers from Tzu Chi in Taiwan and Turkey will go to the south of Turkey (the earthquake zone areas) to provide assistance to the afflicted families there.
