Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal event

March 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Fundraising event to raise funds to supply humanitarian and medical aid to agencies working in the earthquake zone.

Supporting the Syrian and Turkish communities in Norfolk, the People from Abroad Team are co-ordinating this fundraising event at Blackfriars Hall, Norwich on Sunday 19 March from 2pm to 6pm.

The venue is being provided by Norwich City Council, and local Turkish and Syrian restaurants and caterers are providing a buffet meal. There will be a topical presentation by local representatives of the Turkish and Syrian communities explaining the impact the earthquake has had on the two countries and what you can do to help.

There will also be a raffle to raise additional funds.

All proceeds will be sent directly to organisations working to support victims of the earthquake, 50% to AHBAP in Turkey and 50% to the White Helmets in Syria. The costs of this event are being covered by local Syrian and Turkish communities, local businesses and both Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council.

This event is aimed at adults, and not particularly structured for children under 16.
