Soho House supports the people of Turkey and Syria
In the wake of the Kahramanmaras earthquake, we stand with those in the affected regions
Thursday 16 February 2023 By Soho House
As the crisis resulting from the Kahramanmaras earthquake in Turkey and Northern Syria continues to unfold, here at Soho House we’re working hard to provide aid to the region.
Our colleagues at Soho House Istanbul are sending emergency supplies to the impacted zone and we have introduced a new dish to our menus at all UK and EU Houses, which will help unlock further support for those affected.
A Turkish speciality, our Kofte flame-grilled meatballs – served with smoked yoghurt, grilled tomatoes and pickled onions – will be a feature on our all-day menus from now until mid-March. In the UK and Europe, a donation of £1/ €1/ 4ILS will be given to the Disasters Emergency Committee, a dedicated organisation that brings together leading aid charities to provide vital medical care, food, clean water and emergency shelter to help on the ground.
Soho House will match, like for like, the amount raised by the sale of both dishes.
There is no consolation that can be given to those affected so terribly by the earthquake, but our hope is that as a global community this small gesture of support will go some way to assisting in the aftermath.
The Soho House Foundation has also made a financial pledge to the DEC. If you would also like to donate, please click here.
