SCM gets aid quickly to those who need it most, thanks to your continuous support. When the recent earthquake hit Turkey and Syria, we immediately made phone calls, connected with partner teams on the ground, and assessed gaps that we could fill. We’re already distributing aid there. And our warehouse team in Jordan has quickly mobilized to send even more.
I lived in Aleppo for 10 years and have a lot of friends and family there, and we talk on a regular basis. They are also updating me on the situation and letting me know what is needed in the Aleppo and Idlib regions. This information along with the information we get from our partner teams informs our decisions on what to send in from Jordan and Turkey. SCM, with its partners, are working night and day to get the assistance needed in the northwest region of Syria.
To get assistance to people we are asking for monetary donations to purchase exactly what is needed in Jordan and Turkey and get it to people as soon as possible. It is faster than trying to organize, fill and ship a container.
There continue to be more earthquakes and aftershocks that are 5.8 and higher. The situation is very bad, and the weather is getting worse with expected snow, rain, and high wind conditions. A river levy has broken because of the earthquake and flooded nearby towns, making things even more difficult there, if you can imagine.
We still need your help. Please help us help them. If you have already donated, we thank you. Please share this with everyone you can think of. Also, consider setting up a monthly automatic donation by clicking the linked text.
