We are republishing updates from Red Ribbon Istanbul following the earthquakes in Turkey and information for donations provided by the organisation
Dear international followers, colleagues, and friends
After the first update we posted, we received many support messages. It’s so nice to know that we’re not alone. Thanks to everyone. The picture becomes more apparent as days go by, and unfortunately, the situation is not cheering. As of the moment we share this post, the situation is as follows:
Our priority after the earthquakes was PLHIV and possible treatment interruptions they might have. We have done our best on the issue and still keep doing it. In addition, there is no problem with accessing the medication at the moment, as the social security agency in Türkiye has announced that they will re-supply medicines for those who cannot access their medication on a one-time basis with no questions asked (this information is valid for anyone with chronic diseases with the most recent medication report registered in the pharmacy system).
These bank accounts belong to trustworthy NGOs now in the field to provide humanitarian aid and needing financial support for sustainable operations. Those friends of ours who want to donate to support us/our country may use these accounts. And if you wish, you can share with us where and how much you donated with a private massage, and later we can make a list of donations to announce to the public.
As we mentioned above, there is no medication-related problem. But if such a need occurs, we will inform you with another announcement.
Thank you for all your support messages and prayers.
P.S. Please send us the links of your institutions’/NGOs’ social media posts about the earthquakes. We want to share them on our social media accounts&website.
