It’s such a silly refrain, but right now in Buenos Aires… it is 93 degrees with 46% humidity
It’s not too bad.
Everyone reacts differently to the heat…me I can take 90 if I have shade and a breeze.
Today, we have neither, no breeze, and it is noon, so no shade. Walking if you must is only in the shade, where it feels 20 degrees cooler.
And I do live in an air- conditioned apartment.
And no, I’m not complaining.
But it made me think of my life here with such gratitude after seeing the destruction and devastating in Eastern Türkiye.
These fotos show the destruction of homes and businesses, hospitals and school and government buildings. Bridges, highways, and local avenues are all buckled and not usable.
What a project to try and rescue folks that still might be alive in the debris, try to provide food, shelter, and warmth to this area…the job is colossal.
Through my dear friend who lives in Istanbul, I and a few friends were able to get a cash donation to her. She, in turn, gave the money to a man, another friend who was able to buy food and blankets and then drive to an area of the devastation.
I know we made a difference in a few people’s lives. She thanked us for our quick response.
These donations will be needed again in Eastern Turkey and Syria for quite some time, as I think it will take years to rebuild the devastated areas, and peoples lives might never recover from their losses.
I will take this time to suggest a donation of money or if you are able to provide services to any of the following organizations.
Doctors without borders
World Central Kitchen
Feeding people fresh food in disasters all over the world.
Red Cross or Red Crescent
White helmets Volunteer organization in Syria that have been evacuating people in the rubble.
