    Thank you so much for this post and your email. Thankfully none of my family or my friends affected but I am affected emotionally so bad as I am living abroad in another country as a coder. I have a cousine who is working on logistics, she says they cannot allow any help trucks which didn't get authorization from local municipality or afad. At this point gathering things locally and trying to send is not the best choice. There is a trusted NGO Ahbap and here is their donation link: . Also, redcross of Austria and Netherlands are supporting. People who would like to help but align with their own country can find their official earquake support redcross of their own country and I learned that Japan is also supporting. I hope no country on Earth would have to tackle with such a disaster like this ❤️
