LOUISVILLE, Ky. — More help is on the way for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria. In the grips of a growing humanitarian crisis that may seem a world away, Louisville organizations are closing the gap.
“What we’re doing here is going to touch so many lives,” Giovani Oliveira told Spectrum News. Oliveria is an employee of SOS.
Oliveira checked off an inventory that will soon save lives—the boxes loaded with medical supplies, gowns, masks, blankets, food and bleach makers will be in the air in a few hours.
These donations were assembled by three separate nonprofits in Louisville and booked on a flight to Turkey, thanks to the UPS Foundation.
