The current crisis

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake and its aftershocks killed thousands of people and caused extensive damage in both countries. The death toll was expected to rise, with experts warning that aftershocks could last for days or weeks. Those aftershocks stretched “a distance of about 100km to 200km (62 to 124 miles) all along a big fault line,” Chris Elders, professor at the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Curtin University in Perth, Australia. Turkey is primarily located on the Anatolian Plate, with two major faults running between the Anatolian Plate and the Eurasian Plate to the north of Turkey's land mass, and the East Anatolian Fault running along the Arabian Plate to the southeast of Turkey's territory.

Turkey is one of the most active earthquake zones in the world due to its geological location. 

Just like mentioned before, this is a non-profit organization and our mission is to make a difference by not only raising money but more importantly, by raising awareness. Our first project is to provide help to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Like many others, this conflict is viewed by society as a trend, which we find concerning. It often happens that when a war breaks out, or a largely significant political conflict occurs, society will address it and greatly bring it out, which is great as it raises awareness; however, society does pick the situations it wants to address, leaving other, perhaps more impactful situations in the shadows. In addition to focusing on ending the “trends” and not making them “quickly” forgotten about, we want to increase awareness and bring recognition to other non-addressed conflicts that may need our help more than we even know it.
