Donate to the Earthquake in Türkiye & Syria Appeal


We have seen the Red Cross do tremendous work around the world and now it's time to focus our efforts on a special place in our hearts.

Our family and many people around the world are devastated by the news of the catastrophic earthquake in Syria and Turkey. What a painful day seeing entire neighbourhoods in our homeland destroyed and thousands of families fighting for their last breaths under collapsed buildings. Knowing there were children hugging each other after the first shake, not knowing that would be their last moment.

We are calling on all governments, organizations and relief efforts everywhere to help and support the people of Syria and Turkey. Let's show the world that humanity can come together in times of crisis to support one another.

Thanks to the generosity of Canadian Red Cross donors, the Government of Canada match of $10 million has been reached as of February 12, 2023. Your donation will continue to provide vital humanitarian assistance to people impacted by the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria. Thank you for your support.

On behalf of the Hadhad family and our entire Peace by Chocolate community, Thank You for every single donation.

Damaging earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria are impacting countless people who have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones, leaving them in desperate need of safe shelter, clean water, and warm food.

Your generosity will deliver emergency relief and ensure that people in Türkiye and Syria do not have to face this tragedy alone.

The Red Cross Red Crescent is working to deliver emergency relief and to get help to those impacted by the earthquakes as quickly as possible. Money raised will enable the Red Cross Red Crescent to provide immediate relief, ongoing recovery efforts and resiliency and preparedness activities in impacted and surrounding areas. The activities and areas impacted may evolve based on emerging needs and compounding humanitarian crises.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."

– Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner
