Global Changemakers & TSA Earthquake Relief for Turkiye

together we can, Nebraska Turkish student association, Nebraska Honors and Global Changemakers

The Global Changemakers Honors Experiential Track is partnering with the UNL Turkish Student Association (TSA) to raise funds to provide relief to victims of the deadly earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023.

The 7.8 earthquake struck Southern and Central Turkey and Northern and Western Syria, causing widespread destruction and over 59,000 deaths. The disaster is considered one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern history, with billions of dollars of damage. Three months after the disaster, around 2 million people (about the population of Nebraska) are still in temporary shelters.

From May 6-19, 2023, the Global Changemakers are helping to raise awareness and direct donations to their partner, the UNL Turkish Student Association (TSA), and its existing “together WE CAN” fundraising efforts. The TSA will send all funds to Turkish nonprofit AHBAP Association, which has long-established relationships and points of contact across the disaster zone.

The overall fundraising goal is $6,000, and contributors are encouraged to donate $6 or any amount ending in 6. Please consider $26 (for February 6), $56 (for May 6), or a larger amount if you are able.
