Disaster Relief for Karahüyük (Reyhanlı, Hatay) by NIT
NIT has started a campaign to raise funds for earthquake victims in Turkey.
Message from our colleagues at the Netherlands Institute in Turkey (Istanbul):
As NIT, we are deeply sorry for the loss of lives and damage from the devastating earthquakes that affected the southeastern part of Türkiye. We extend our condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy.
One of the many communities that were strongly affected by these terrible earthquakes is the village near the archaeological site Tell Kurdu, where excavations co-directed by Koç University and NIT have been ongoing since 2022. We started a campaign to raise funds to help the Karahüyük community near Tell Kurdu Excavations to rebuild their houses and lives.
This message is also on the NIT website.
