TheSmartAID team in Sydney feels incredibly fulfilled after a knowing that they were able to prepare the whole shipment of aid to support those impacted by the earthquake in Türkiye.  We want to express our gratitude toRachel Ward, as well as all the volunteers from the Turkish Consulate and the Turkish community, MedEarth team and The Angels Network team, who joined all our SmartAID volunteer team in packing 21 pallets. 


The team in Sydney spent many days packing up the donation of 10 pallets of medical goods donated by MedEarth, which included ventilators, syringe's, ICU RecoveryOxygen meters, wheelchairs, thermal shock blankets, crutches and much more.


TheSmartAID team and volunteers also packed up warm bedding, head lights from localTurkish communities in Sydney, solar lights donated by Solar Buddy and AyalaFoundation and sleeping bags donated by Kathmandu Australia.  All this aid was sent to a camp which just opened for 1500people who had lost everything and are now this camp in Adayamen, Turkey.
