Rebuilding Hope

A Fundraising Event for Turkey and Syria Earthquake Victims and the Turkish Sangha

Sunday March 19, 2023 , 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Join us at the Melbourne Buddhist Centre for a special fundraiser event in support of the victims of the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. These devastating earthquakes have left hundreds of thousands of people and animals without homes, food, and basic necessities.

This event aims to bring us together as fellow human beings and raise funds and awareness for those affected by this devastating disaster. The proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the ongoing relief efforts in Turkey and Syria, helping to provide vital resources such as shelter, food, water and medical assistance to those in need, and towards the Turkish Sangha Fund.

Our event will feature live music and delicious Turkish food. Please feel free to bring a plate of vegan/vegetarian food to share. Come join us for an evening of music, food and generosity, and let’s make a difference in the lives of those who have been affected by these tragic events.
