Concert for the children in the earthquake zone in Hatay/ Turkey

It was a very impressive concert tour that we won´t soon forget. At the invitation of the Goethe Institute Istanbul, we played a concert in a container camp for the children affected by the earthquake in Antakya/Hatay.

The city of Antakya in south-eastern Turkey was severely destroyed by the strong earthquake in February 2023. Container camps, tents and collapsed buildings characterize the cityscape. A permanent film of dust covers everything. Many people here have lost everything. Family members, friends, houses and possessions.

It was very impressive for us to see how warmly and hospitably we were welcomed, how hopeful and friendly the children were despite their miserable situation and how committed the many volunteers were, who have been helping the people here for months.

LET´S NOT FORGET THE PEOPLE IN HATAY! YOU CAN HELP BY SUPPORTING THE ORGANIZATION  NEEDSMAP.
