The devastating aftermath of the powerful earthquake that struck Syria and Turkey has sparked a massive response from governments and aid organizations around the world. With thousands of fatalities, many more injured, and widespread destruction of buildings and homes, the magnitude 7.8 quake has created a humanitarian crisis on a massive scale.

As rescue and recovery efforts continue, there are ways that you can help. Before making a donation, it's crucial to research the organization to ensure it's reputable. Websites such as Charity Navigator and Guidestar rate nonprofits based on transparency and efficacy, and you can also check the Internal Revenue Service database to see if an organization is eligible for tax-deductible contributions.

Numerous national and international organizations are stepping up to assist those affected by the disaster. By supporting these efforts, Stran wants to help make a tangible difference in the lives of those impacted by this tragedy.
