It is 5 days since the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The deep sorrow we feels as we witness the devasting destruction of communities, the loss of thousands of lives, livelihoods and the tearing apart of families, as of today it is being reported that 19,388 lives have been lost. This earthquake will leave deep scars for generations. We must also remember that there are many Soroptimist Sisters in Turkey who have lost everything.
