Turkish Food Festival Helps the Needy of Arkansas

IMG 0920cropped smllWe are happy to announce that Raindrop Turkish House Little Rock Branch has donated a portion of the Turkish Food Festival proceedings to the Arkansas Food Bank. The Annual Turkish Food Festival took place on April 26, 2014, however, the tornado disaster in Central Arkansas has delayed the delivery of the donation. Many of volunteers were actively involved with disaster relief efforts; collecting debris, fundraising, and visiting the sites.

The development associate Ms. Rebecca Smithson, who is new at her position at the Food Bank, indicated that this donation will provide four thousand meals to the needy in Arkansas.

As responsible citizens of Arkansas we applaud the efforts of all aid organizations like the Foodbank, and look forward to assist all of them in any way we can. Of the total proceedings almost $2,000 was spent for the disaster relief and the Arkansas Food Bank received $1,000 on May 21, 2014.

Meanwhile, the tornado aid campaign is still going on. You can click here to donate for the Tornado victims and other campaigns that Raindrop Turkish House and its volunteers contribute.

soma-70F1-6B1F-1312On Tuesday, May 13th a mining disaster claimed the lives of nearly 300 miners in Soma near western Turkey. According to reports the death toll seems certain to rise, as about 100 people are still missing. The disaster was caused by a fire in the mine. Efforts were made to save the victims, however only around 100 have been rescued.The mine explosion is already being called the deadliest industrial disaster in Turkey's history. It is not just those who lost relatives and loved ones in the worst mining tragedy that Turkey has ever faced who are suffering; the whole country is mourning the deaths of the 300 mine workers killed in the disaster. On behalf of Raindrop Foundation we would like to convey our condolences to the friends and relatives of the miners and our deepest sympathies to the families. Now it is time to help the rescued miners and the families of the victims. Raindrop Foundation in collaboration with Embrace Relief has started a campaign for the people of Soma who are affected by the mining disaster.
