Hi Azamin. Thanks for your concern. My family is fine. They live in
Istanbul, where there was some damage. I live in the USA. Here are the
only addresses and phone #s I'm aware of for releif help. 
Financial donations can be made to:
The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh
4100 Bigelow Blvd.
Pittsburgh, Pa. 15213 USA
But, I think they are only accepting dollars. Check with the Turkish
embassy in Kuala Lampur, I'm sure they can be of more assistance in
Also, anyone here in the USA, can call the Turkish Relief Association
toll-free at 1-877-TURKEY9, and make a donation. Please tell this to
all your friends. As many as 20,000 people may be dead. This is a
horrible tragedy. Thanks, Tilly the Turkish-American groopie:)
