I am donating 30% of all proceeds from my Istanbul photos to the SOMA DISASTER RELIEF FUND.
As many of you have heard, the day we left Istanbul there was the biggest mining disaster to have hit Turkey.
Turkey’s biggest mining disaster killed at least 284 coal miners in Soma. 150 are missing. Most miners made $600/month and were the sole breadwinners. This campaign will raise funds for these families, many of which have no breadwinners left and are facing bankruptcy. The goverment will compensate the family of a dead miner only $480/month and additional support for these families is essential. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soma_mine_disaster
