Zonta Brooklyn sends warmth to relief organizations in Turkey
Zontian Ambereen Sleemi is a doctor with a dear friend and fellow physician from Turkey. Upon learning that Turkish relief organizations and the Turkish Embassy in Washington, D.C., have been urgently requesting winter items, she rallied her club, Zonta Brooklyn, USA, to collect the items.
On Thursday, Ambereen drove all the donations from Brooklyn, New York, to Washington, D.C., and personally delivered them to a contact at the Embassy.
The club is no stranger to lending a helping hand to those in need. Last year, the club raised more than US$3,000 in donations for Zonta clubs in Ukraine.
