Our thoughts go out to those who were injured and to the families of those who have lost their lives in the recent Turkish-Syrian earthquakes.

Our gratitude goes to the rescuers and all the health care professionals, including pediatric neurosurgeons, who are taking care of them.

Kenes, our professional congress organizer (PCO), with its office in Istanbul, has identified 2 organizations who are doing relief efforts now, and that can work to make a direct difference on the ground.

The ISPN invites you to support the below organizations in their efforts:

For Turkey –  https://ahbap.org/disasters-turkey

For Syria – https://whitehelmets.org/en/


On  behalf of the ISPN Executive Board,

Wan Tew Seow
