We stand in solidarity with the people of Syria and Turkey who have been affected by the recent major earthquake tragedy.
The consequences of the once in a 500-year earthquake which struck South Eastern Turkey and North West Syria have been devastating and have left us all very saddened. Thousands of buildings have collapsed, causing severe damage to infrastructure and many more have lost their lives
As Harvesters, it is our responsibility to stand in solidarity with the people of Turkey, our birthplace, which is why we have partnered with local charity Empati (Empathy Social Responsibility and Education Association), founded by one of Kaplankaya's community members. The workers and volunteers at Empati are working tirelessly to bring vital supplies to those in need, including food, clothing, medical supplies, blankets and more. Check out their Instagram page to see regular updates of what they're doing.
The outpouring of sympathy from our community has been tremendous and we are grateful for the offers of help. We have now added a donations option during the checkout section of anyone purchasing tickets to a Harvest event through the booking site, however you can also make a direct donation via bank transfer to Empati using the details below.
