Turkish and Syrian Earthquake’s, February 2023
As of this publication, BP4K has been able to respond to children affected by the earthquake in Turkey. We have sent 265 backpacks and raised almost $30,000USD for our Turkish operations. As of March 2023, the Turkish government has strict control over disaster areas within their borders. In addition, there are other safety and security concerns that prevents our team from traveling there. Until then we are looking for partners and organizations who can deliver our backpacks, such as our recent opportunity with the UPS foundation.
