SID-US's Statement on the Earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria

With the new cycle's constant churn on politics and policy, the jolt of a natural disaster can often trigger shock and disbelief, and the news of the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria is no different. Our thoughts are with our friends, family, and colleagues, and the citizens and refugees in the region grappling with this terrible unprecedented catastrophe.

Some of the most vulnerable people in the world live in this region, and we encourage you to consider donating to one of our many Institutional Member organizations mobilizing immediate aid and response to the area.

We are hoping to convene our members to exchange information on how to assist in the emergency relief efforts, and we will keep our community updated on any programming or activities related to supporting the aid response in the region.

Please email us with any questions or suggestions.
