We have all been heartbroken watching the toll from the deadly earthquake mount. We think of and pray for those who have lost their lives, those who are working so hard to recover anyone still alive, and all who have been affected by this unthinkable tragedy.
We join our prayers to those of the Holy Father
Many are already supporting the relief effort, but its important to do so as practically as possible, and its good to know that some of the major Irish humanitarian organisations have launched a joint-appeal calling on the Irish public to help support people impacted by the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria.
Irish Emergency Alliance members Trócaire, Action Aid, Christian Aid, Plan International, Tearfund and World Vision Ireland, are responding to the crisis by fundraising to provide food, water, blankets, hygiene kits and shelter.
