Turkish Philanthropy Funds (TPF) is proud to announce that PAYDA and TOCEV are selected as the first two recipients of the TPF COVID-19 Community Relief Fund.
With the Relief Fund, TPF sees its role as being the bridge that helps our partners and our community get the help to obtain the resources they need during this time. Accordingly, TPF has decided to fund the following projects:
- Sharing and Solidarity Organization (PAYDA), “We Will Heal Together” Project: The funds will be used to obtain and distribute urgently needed medical protective items for healthcare professionals. The items will go directly to the doctors and medical staff. More specifically, the grant amount of $10,350 will be used for purchasing 800 N95 Masks, 500 face shields, and 500 waterproof Exposure Suits.
- Tüvana Okuma İstekli Çocuk Eğitim Vakfı (TOCEV) “Side by Side” Project: The grant amount of $11,250 will be going toward helping 100 families of 344 TOCEV students. During the pandemic, these families have lost their jobs and have reported financial hardship. The project will support these 100 families by providing 750TL cash payment to each family to help them cover the cost of groceries.
Thank you for being our partners and taking immediate action to support those affected by COVID-19 during this time.
Turkish Philanthropy Funds continues its search for new projects to support.
