What is Nevruz? NEVRUZ

Nevruz Türk dünyasının bayramıdır

Florida Turkish American Association & Azerbaijan American Cultural Association jointly invite you to celebrate the New Year (Nevruz)

Novruz in Azerbaijan

In the annual Presidential message on Newruz celebrations, such as the one done on March 19, 2005, it was stated: "Many Americans who trace their heritage to Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Central Asia observe this special occasion to preserve their rich heritage and ensure that their values and traditions are passed on to future generations. This festival also reminds all Americans of the diversity that has made our Nation stronger and better."

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.
