In response, Islamic Relief Canada and Kincardine Islamic Centre are hosting an emergency fundraiser dinner on Sunday, March 8th at Whitney Crawford Community Center in Kincardine. The event is FREE and includes dinner, with all donations going towards supporting those affected by the earthquake.

Islamic Relief Canada has teams on the ground in both Turkey and Syria, providing life-saving aid such as food packs, temporary winter shelter kits, medical aid, and water to those impacted by the earthquake. As the situation develops, they will continue to conduct needs assessments and respond with the appropriate aid accordingly.

Your donations can make a significant impact on the lives of those affected by the earthquake. For example, a cash grant of $130 can provide a family with basic essentials, while $150 can provide a food pack for a displaced family. Additionally, $275 can provide emergency shelter for two families.

It's important to remember that time is of the essence in this situation, and every donation can help save lives. By attending the fundraiser dinner or making a donation online, you can help ease the burden of this catastrophe for the people of Turkey and Syria. Let's come together as a community to support those in need during this difficult time.
