It absolutely broke my heart for my birth-country that was hit with 2 earthquakes in southeastern Turkey. IT IS AN EXTRAORDINARY NATURAL DISASTER NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN SUCH A SCALE, STRENGTH AND EFFECT. They struck 10 cities in 9 hours and with many aftershocks altogether caused a major catastrophe. The first main shock came in the middle of night, in freezing winter with heavy snow. The magnitude 7.8 and 7.6 earthquakes were so severe.
World Health Organisation registered this catastrophic incident as a 3rd Level Alarm which is highly important in terms of immediate help needed.
As I prepare this meditation practice for you, thousands of people are still trapped under the rubble of thousands collapsed buildings crying for help. Thousands have died and many more will follow. Thousands of people were injured. Many families lost their family members, many left homeless. Mothers, fathers, children, siblings, friends, students, hospital staff, patients… 2 of 10 cities have been wiped out from the map, and two thirds of the population there lost their lives. Our loved ones are missing and it's hard for them to endure the freezing cold during the nights on and under the rubble.
The weather conditions are too strong with heavy snow in some cities, and Search & Rescue Teams are not enough to reach all provinces and districts in such a short time. Adults, children, infants are dying due to hypothermia. An epidemic is a huge concern, and people are helpless and losing hope.
People who have lost their homes need food, drinking water, shelter/tent, baby products such as nappies and baby food, blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothes, heating, medicine, hygiene products and many other basic essentials as well as heavy duty machines to remove the debris in search & rescue, mobile toilets, fuel for power generators etc.
If you would like to help people affected by the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, I will have an Aid-Box in classrooms for collecting your donations in exchange with a Guided Metta (Loving Kindness) Meditation recording that I led in solidarity with the victims & survivors. Every penny will be directed to trusted organisations which provide help and support to victims in the most needed areas. I hope I will be able to do this exchange online here as well. The suggested donation is £20, but any heartfelt amount will certainly help.
* £30 could provide blankets for six people
* £50 could provide emergency food for two families for 10 days
* £100 could provide emergency shelter for four families.
* £500 could provide emergency mobile toilet, medicine and some hygiene equipment for families.
An act of kindness from each of us could make a huge difference.
The Loving Kindness Meditation, or Metta meditation, is a centuries-old practice that originally came from the Buddhist tradition. It involves reflecting on ourselves and others by expanding the feeling of love and compassion within us.
Please register now, and follow the instructions on your confirmation email to make your donation. Within 24 hours after your transaction, you will receive the recording of Guided Metta (Loving-Kindness) Meditation to show your solidarity with the victims of these 2 massive earthquakes.
Thank you for honouring lives of these victims, and for your kindness & compassion.
With gratitude & loving-kindness!
