Donation of Money

The Red Cross Society of Seychelles (RCSS) is launching an appeal for money to assist the people of
Turkey and Syria after the devastating earthquake which is still causing havoc and suffering. The RCSS is accepting only cash in order to facilitate faster assistance. It will not be accepting any other donations like clothes and perishable goods. Donations can be made to the Red Cross Disaster Victims Account: 1069230 (ABSA).
The RCSS is joining all National Red Cross Red Crescent Societies around the world that are responding to this situation, drawing a Federation-wide effort.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said they had 5,200 volunteers mobilised on both sides of the border, with the Turkish operation being more robust and better equipped because of its longstanding programme to support Syrian refugees.

The IFRC is already planning its recovery efforts over 12 months, with recurring assessments to define the scope.
