Now is the Time to Increase Solidarity

The second phase in the fundraising campaign: BOYUT and BTF collaboration

As Boğaziçi University International Community (BOYUT), we have initiated the second phase of the fundraising campaign for university students who are directly affected by the earthquakes that occurred on February 6th. In the first phase we have sent a one-time stipend worth 5,000 TL (ca. $250) per person in aid to 150 students, in cooperation with the student councils, alumni organizations, and academics of the selected universities.

In this second round, we will execute the fundraising campaign in collaboration with Bridge to Turkey (BTF) platform, an organization with over 20 years of experience organizing aid campaingns in Turkey. We will be extending our support to students from Boğaziçi University, Middle East Technical University, Istanbul Technical University, Yıldız Technical University, Ankara University, Ege University, Hacettepe University students, Gebze Technical University and Çukurova University students. Our ultimate goal is to expand the campaign’s reach to more universities once the fundraising pool is expanded.

We would be grateful if you could circulate this campaign among your networks:
