Our dear neighbors in Turkey and Syria are suffering in the wake of an astonishing earthquake and subsequent aftershocks that impacted hundreds of thousands of people.
To help provide immediate relief and long-time assistance for communities affected by this disaster, St. Joseph Community Partnership Fund on behalf of Providence is supporting Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), two well-established organizations with wide-ranging, global networks.
We contributed $100,000 to each organization as part of our ongoing partnerships as they respond to the most urgent needs of communities damaged or destroyed in the wake of this horrible event.
The recovery and healing efforts for our friends overseas remain long into the future. We are committed to continued partnerships with CRS and to CDP to assist those affected long after this tragedy is making headlines.
