Turkey & Syria Earthquake 2023
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
Truly to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return. (Soorah al-Baqarah 2:156)
The recent earthquake that struck in Turkey and Syria was one of the most powerful and destructive quakes to befall the region in a century. Thousands of people have died with tens of thousands injured.
Please remember our Muslim brothers and sisters affected by this calamity in your supplications.
In our effort to aid and assist our brothers and sisters who have been deeply impacted by the earthquake in Turkey, ICPB will be accepting donations this Saturday March 11th between the hours of 8am – 11am.
Attached is a PDF document which lists the accepted donations for the Global Empowerment Mission’s Turkey earthquake disaster relief efforts. Anything in the attached list are welcome, but the following are their current priority items that are in the greatest need:

Due to the political restrictions and logistical limits of the Global Empowerment Mission (GEM), we are currently unable to send aid to Syria. However, GEM says they are working on obtaining access to that region and we will inform the community as soon as we receive an update.
May Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta ‘alaa accept from you any donations and help you are able to provide.
