Turkish Coffee, Baklava, and Gifts – Fundraiser for Earthquake Disaster Relief in Turkey
A fundraiser with Turkish items will be held on the OC on Nov 10th. Purchases assist the people of Van, Turkey–home of visiting Islamic Professor Nilay Ozok-Gundogan–whose earthquake-rattled city has seen many dead and missing, and thousands of people homeless and without warmth as winter sets in. Funds are directed toward Nilay’s recommended NGO–Van Women’s Association (Van Kadin Dernegi/VAKAD) historically known for their work on women’s rights and their ability to reach the poorest of poor.
Sponsors: Arrows, Bill Aossey ’63, Chaplain, Civic Engagement, Cornell’s new Muslim Student Association, Beth Engel ’57, Eyes of the World, Intercultural Life, Interfaith Understanding and Exploration, Professors Nilay Ozo-Gundogan and Azat Zana-Gundogan, Soul Friends, Sodexho, Skys, and TWRG.
