soma-70F1-6B1F-1312On Tuesday, May 13th a mining disaster claimed the lives of nearly 300 miners in Soma near western Turkey. According to reports the death toll seems certain to rise, as about 100 people are still missing. The disaster was caused by a fire in the mine. Efforts were made to save the victims, however only around 100 have been rescued.The mine explosion is already being called the deadliest industrial disaster in Turkey's history. It is not just those who lost relatives and loved ones in the worst mining tragedy that Turkey has ever faced who are suffering; the whole country is mourning the deaths of the 300 mine workers killed in the disaster. On behalf of Raindrop Foundation we would like to convey our condolences to the friends and relatives of the miners and our deepest sympathies to the families. Now it is time to help the rescued miners and the families of the victims. Raindrop Foundation in collaboration with Embrace Relief has started a campaign for the people of Soma who are affected by the mining disaster.
