Thanks so much for your post. Unfortunately there is not so much Gitcoin itself can do.
We are between rounds, so there are no matching funds to distribute.

However you can always create a Grant on our platform, it will however not be quadratically matched at this time, more on this here.

I will do my share by linking your great overview post in the Twitter thread, by our friends at Giveth.

Hope this helps & thank you for all that you do.

I would like to talk a little bit about the situation in order for you to understand the extent of the earthquake in Turkey. Earthquakes in Turkey have directly affected approximately 13.5 million people, leaving them homeless. People who survived the earthquake that took place during the night hours when sleep was at its deepest had to struggle with harsh winter conditions. In total, 6444 buildings were destroyed. When you consider the average number of apartments in these apartments and the demographic structure in the region, it would not be difficult to predict that the number of deaths will increase very rapidly, not linearly, but parabolicly. It’s the fourth day of the earthquake and the death toll is about to reach 20 thousand. Only the number of injured in the wreckage is 60 thousand and those who survived the earthquake from the 4th day will unfortunately have lost their lives due to the inadequacy of the rescue teams. the disaster in Turkey; It is one of the biggest earthquake disasters of the last century.

Thanks @mrtdlgc for sharing this :heart: It’s truly heartbreaking to hear of how many people are hurting from this.

Just want to share this link here as well to a project by Gnosis DAO - raising funds on Giveth (on gnosis chain) and bridging them to Ahbap NGO. There are low gas fees for donations on gnosis chain, and the project is verified so donors get GIV back for donating - it’s just another way to support this cause.
