The Community Foundation has put together a list of resources for how you can support Syria and Turkey/Turkiye* as they deal with the immediate and longer-term effects of the recent earthquake.

In looking through these options, you might might notice different responses by the same nonprofits in Syria and Turkey. These appear to be based on the individual needs within each country, but also on the fact that NGOs’ access to different regions differs based on the political factors in each country.
