The International Judo Federation (IJF) – in co-ordination with the Turkish Judo Federation – has decided to help the population in Southern Türkiye and northern Syria affected by the earthquake by activating its donation platform. This will help greatly to collect and deliver basic necessities, which in these harsh times are lacking.
The earthquake has claimed thousands of lives and thrown even more people from their homes. The Kilis region was particularly badly affected. The IJF, through its Judo for Peace programme, has invested to support Syrian refugees who had to flee their country because of civil war. More than 2,000 young people were thus able to participate in judo activities in order to give them a little hope and to promote their integration into the Turkish population. The 6th February earthquake added to the horror of war. To date, more than 20,000 victims have already been counted.
There is no donation too small. Everything counts in this emergency situation. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
Support now via donate.ijf.org
