A list of organisations to support communities suffering from the Turkey-Syria earthquake can be found below.
Following a series of devastating earthquakes on the Turkish-Syrian border on Monday which has seen more than 16,000 people tragically lose their lives, Turkish nightclubs and venues are uniting to offer help.
Clubgoers from the surrounding area are providing the necessary relief supplies, which the clubs then pass on to those in need. Istanbul nightclubs Klein Phönix, Klein Harbiye, RX Istanbul, and MiniMuzikhol, as well as Kite in Ankara and DatDat in Izmir, have launched campaigns to collect essential goods for the people of the 10 affected provinces.
A list of items is also provided by the Turkish government's Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency, AFAD. The list includes relief supplies that such as heaters, blankets, clothes, food, power banks or sleeping bags.
