Looks like I am going back to Turkey next month. You remember a few months ago we delivered blankets and warm clothes in the first week of the earthquake. There is some follow-up work with the earthquake that I am involved in. Very exciting but will be hard to leave the family.
I am looking for a sponsor to get my flight there. I am also receiving donations for the earthquake and making sure they go to the right place. You can see how we spent the previous money here and our philosophy behind the how we spent it.
I might be open to some volunteers coming with me. There is also a need for some young people to spend a year in Van to help with the rebuilding. I would love to see some Kiwis and Aussies go because there is a special connection with Turkey. Email me and tell me what you're thinking.
