Turkey earthquake: Urgently needed: Tents

The Turkish Government urgently requires about 30,000 tents for the people rendered homeless by the recent earthquake.

The tents should be big enough to accommodate a family of four or five people and, if possible, be winterized against adverse weather conditions.

Turkish Airlines will be carrying donated tents free of charge on board its regular flights from New York, Chicago and Miami. The numbers for their cargo offices are: (718) 244-7760 (for New York), (773) 462-9222 (for Chicago) and (305) 871-9000 (for Miami).

Donors who can provide tents as described above can also contact the Turkish Embassy at (202) 612-6724.
