There is nothing more terrifying than a man’s sanctuary becoming his tomb in an instant. This week’s earthquake in Türkiye and Syria is a fearsome example of nature’s wrath.
In a world full of calamities; whether crime, war, climate change, economic perils, or natural disasters such as this earthquake, we are hit by so much news of misfortune, that its effect can quickly be replaced. Therefore, it is essential to help in any way we can right away while its mark is in front of us. As healthcare providers, we can do much more than just send money. Our help and knowledge is more valuable than any monetary donation. Contributions usually help organizations and governments, not the poor and afflicted. Your presence will help the truly needy. Please consider volunteering your services for a few weeks or months. Not only will your work be greatly valued, but you will return richer with wisdom.
World Health Organization (WHO), Doctors Without Border, International Red Cross and Red Crescent, Project Hope and many other organizations are seeking volunteers. Let’s help them.
