Millions of people are homeless and more than 50,000 people have died after the earthquake in Türkiye & Syria. You can make a difference by contributing to the Red Cross or Red Crescent. Following are a few donation sites, and site lists:
"Regarding the artwork, I was inspired by a news story about a 7 years old sister covered brother's head to protect him when both were under collapsed building. In the artwork, I didn't draw the sister but the hand holding the child represents the sister as well as the individuals who have sacrificed themselves for the sake of earthquake victims."
