A Message From Galata Chronicles
Dear Galata Chronicles subscribers,
As you may already know, Turkey was struck by two devastating earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.5 and hundreds of aftershocks, causing over 35,000 deaths and widespread damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure.
The impact of this tragedy has been felt by everyone in the country, including our team at Galata Chronicles. We have been deeply affected by the scale of loss and the immense suffering that so many have had to endure. In light of this, we believe it is important to take a moment to acknowledge the human toll of this disaster.
As we all process the magnitude of what has happened, we want to urge our readers to consider donating to charities that are actively involved in providing relief to the affected communities. Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of those who have lost everything.
Organizations like the Turkish Red Crescent, AFAD and many others are working tirelessly to provide essential supplies and support to those in need. One of our own was in the epicenter of the earthquake until yesterday, helping the efforts. With donations, they can continue to provide critical aid to the people affected by the earthquake. Every little bit counts, so even small contributions can make a meaningful impact. If you want to help through official channels, here are the websites for doing so:
If not, as we said, there are a lot of trusted charities, so just pick one you like.
We are committed to continuing to provide you with insightful articles on the Turkish economy and finance and we will continue doing what we do quite soon, but we feel it is important to take a moment to acknowledge the crisis that is unfolding in our country. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
The Galata Chronicles Team
