Van, Turkey Earthquake Relief Fund

earthquake

All of us at Florida have been saddened by news of the terrible earthquake that has struck the eastern province of Van in Turkey. Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute of Turkey has estimated that between 500 and 1,000 people may have perished in the 7.2-magnitude earthquake. (As of Nov. 5, 2011 number of victims are 600, and counting) Our thoughts are with the injured and the families of the victims. We extend our deepest condolences to all families who lost their loved ones.

We would like to convey our sympathy and solidarity by establishing the Van Earthquake Relief Fund at FTAA. 100 % of your contributions will go to AKUT, Kizilay and their grantee partners who are directly involved with Van, to help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake.

Happy 29 October Republic Day!

Dear Turkish Americans community in Florida,

The Turkish republic is 88 years young – yet has accomplished much. We are a shining republic in a volatile region. We are, perhaps a source of inspiration for many: A modern, democratic, secular, free republic run by a proud people, all in the vision of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Ataturk set the course and the goal: raise our country to the level of the most prosperous and civilized nations of the world. And we remain true to his vision.

        I am reminded of two quotes of Ataturk this year: That “…Turks, as a nation throughout history has been a symbol of freedom and independence;” and that “the most appropriate system of administration to the character of the Turkish people is a Republic.”

And these two truths will endure….

On behalf of the Board of directors of FTAA

Commemeration Message

We, The Turks, longtime friends of United States of America, share the pain of the 911 victims and the whole nation.

We all know that the terrorism is not the solution of anything weather it comes from a person, or any illegal organization, or even from any state. We also believe that, such inhuman act turns back and harm the originators.

We all know that the religions are intended to help the human being to be a good, harmless useful person to mankind. Islam has been hijacked, and still harming innocent real religious people because of islamofobi, created by some groups.

Again, we share the pain of the victims of 911, including the Turks who died at that incident. We, as being the Turkish Americans here in South America would like American people to hear our sincere feeling.
