Our partners on the ground prepared this Field Report from earthquake relief efforts in Turkey. Click below to watch:

This situation in both Turkey and Syria remains critical for hundreds of thousands of people. As you know, our Mercy Chefs team was on the ground in Turkey within days of the earthquake strike. We helped establish supply lines and portable kitchens that are feeding thousands of earthquake victims today. 

The road to recovery for those impacted by these earthquakes will be long and difficult. Families are still just beginning to pick up the pieces of their broken lives. Many children are learning in "tent schools" that have been set up to fill the gap with so many school buildings having been damaged or destroyed. A decent meal is still a top priority for far too many people more than one month since the earthquakes struck!

I want to continue to stand with our partners on the ground to help thousands of earthquake victims THIS WEEK.

Can you help? 

If you haven't yet supported our earthquake relief efforts, WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW! News coverage has nearly stopped, but the crisis is very real and urgent for so many in Turkey and Syria. Just $35 will help support meals for 10 earthquake victims.

Go here to help Mercy Chefs sponsor 10, 20, 50 or even 100 meals for earthquake victims as we continue other vital efforts:

The loss of life has been tragic. The devastation that the earthquakes caused is almost incomprehensible. It's the worst I've ever seen.

I want Mercy Chefs to continue to be a lifeline of hope and practical relief.

We can only do that with your continued prayers and support.

Thanks in advance, and may God bless you as you bless others.
