To our 3ZZZ family,

We are deeply saddened by the impact of earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, which have directly affected our families and friends back home.

If you require support, please let us know and we will do our best to help or find someone who can.
Search and rescue operations are underway, but massive damage to infrastructure, roads and telecommunications poses a significant challenge to relief efforts.

Urgent financial support is needed to address immediate medical, sanitary, shelter and nutrition needs, as well as long-term rebuilding efforts.

Türkiye hosts the world’s largest refugee population, while Syrians have endured almost 12 years of conflict. The region is experiencing a severe winter, with snow and icy winds hindering relief efforts.
As explained by TorqAid, an Australian-based global humanitarian and development consultancy (

“Whilst there is currently extensive media coverage, once this declines in the weeks ahead, this could influence or determine future levels of medium to long term financial assistance, particularly for the Recovery Stage.”

If you can, we recommend donating to the following aid organisations in Syria, Türkiye, and Australia:
– Syrian White Helmets –
– Syrian Red Crescent –
– Turkish Red Crescent –
– The UN Refugee Agency Australia –
– Australian Red Cross –
– World Food Programme –
– UNICEF Australia –
– Oxfam –
– World Vision –
