On a warm January afternoon just over two years ago in Port au Prince, an earthquake the likes of which Haiti had not seen in over 50 years struck. The magnitude 7.0 tremors destroyed buildings, residences and resulted in an estimated 316,000 deaths -- making this the 2nd deadliest earthquake of all time.
Among the responders was Turkey's GEA-SAR Team (a member of the International Search and Rescue Advisory Group) which collaborated with US SAR teams to comb through debris and destruction to find the few trapped survivors of this horrendous natural disaster.
This week's "City Focus" is on Istanbul, so we've picked this wordless edition (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 1) of Presentation of the Day to highlight Turkish GEA Team's heroic efforts. It should also be noted that this presentation was originally a part of our Global PechaKucha Day effort for Haiti Reconstruction.
JANUARY 28, 2013
Last week we kicked off our new City Focus feature with Toronto, and this week we shine the spotlight on Istanbul. Led by organizer Nurten Mericer, the city will have its Vol. 16 later this week -- on Thursday, January 31, to be exact -- and you'll find all the details for that PKN as well as the list of presentations on the official event page.
