Rotary in South West Peninsula Responds to the Türkiye-Syria Earthquake Emergency

Rotary clubs across Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly have been responding very quickly by collecting at various locations for those affected by the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria.  Other clubs have allocated funds to go direct.  Funds are often going through ShelterBox and The Rotary Give Star Turkey & Syria Disaster Fund. Both working with people on the ground to meet local needs.  
                            Our support will continue.  

Please support your local club as they respond to this terrible crisis.  Or donate online through our Shelterbox link to the right on this page or here: https://giving.give-star.com/online/rotary-disaster-recovery-trust/turkey-syria-disaster-appeal
