Posolstvo k aktuálnej situácii v Turecku a Sýrii , február 2023.
Excellencies, Chevaliers, Dames, Confrères, Consoeurs
I attach an important and urgent message from our Grand Hospitaller.
Please ensure that all your members receive a copy of this as soon as possible.
EARTHQUAKE DISASTER IN TURKEY & SYRIA
Everybody is aware of the devastating earthquake which struck Turkey and Syria leaving thousands dead and injured, and even more homeless losing all their belongings including essential ones. Such disasters are ripe ground for further ones with the onset of infectious disease and malnutrition. The office of the Grand hospitaller encourages all jurisdictions to dig into their Charitable funds to support the innocent victims of this natural disaster. You are encouraged to donate funds to established charitable organizations who have mobilized to help on the ground – organizations such as AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED and CARITAS INTERNATIONAL who have set up facilities for money transfers.
