Istanbul Half Marathon/10K, 30 April 2023
Help survivors to recover from the devastating effects of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Gaziantep/Kahramanmaras and surrounding regions in Turkiye on 6 February 2023

Story

All of us in Turkey are devastated by the major earthquakes that laid waste to vast swaths of the country's southeast on 6 February, killing more than 50,000 people. Across the 10 affected provinces, more than 200,000 buildings have been destroyed or badly damaged; millions of people are displaced.

The road ahead is a long and difficult one for the survivors. Many independent Turkish NGOs are doing incredible work assisting with immediate needs and longer-term recovery but they are in dire need of resources and support.

As Istanbul Expat Runners we are running the Istanbul Half Marathon and 10K -- and the same distances in solidarity all around the world -- to raise money for the Turkey Mozaik Foundation's Kahramanmaras Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund.

Founded by expat Turks living in the UK, the Turkey Mozaik Foundation is a registered, reliable charity that directs your donations to vetted Turkish civil society organizations as grants to carry out specific projects in the earthquake zone, from delivering emergency food packages and setting up clean-water infrastructure to providing psychosocial support and establishing safe spaces for women and children.

Thank you for contributing to this effort through your donations and shares.
