Humanitarian aid for earthquake victims – transports starting next week – appeal for donations


On a current occasion: We from Menschenfreude e.V. do not want to leave the people affected by the earthquake alone. Relief transports to the affected regions will start immediately - by truck and by ship from Greece. We ask you for donations to finance the transports and to be able to buy for the people on site. Likewise, we will be accepting in-kind donations on 2/25/2023.

Transports to Turkey and Syria by our helpers

From next week on, our transports will start – partly by our volunteers, partly by other helpers from friends and family. The relief supplies are first transported by truck to Turkey – local partners receive the donations – and to Greece. From Greece, half of the goods will then go on a ship to Syria. We also ask you for monetary donations to be able to finance the transports. On the spot, our helpers will buy food for the people and what is acutely needed. We are asking for donations for this as well. We thank you very much for your help and support !
