SENDSCOPE pupils donate supplies for victims of Turkey and Syria earthquakes

Innovative provision SENDSCOPE in South Liverpool has united with a local Turkish BBQ restaurant to support those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

The earthquakes, which started February 6, have affected at least 24 million people as of 22 February. Over 6,500 buildings have been destroyed.

More than 1 million people are homeless due to the earthquakes.

SENDSCOPE is an independent special school that supports neurodiverse young people with Special Educational Needs and Disablities (SEND).

The students, aged 11 to 13, shopped for life-saving supplies to help the people who have lost everything in the disaster.

Students decided what supplies they felt victims would need and had their own budget to purchase items.

The items students bought to help with the aid appeal included:

– Scarves

– Gloves

– Hats

– Nappies

– Toiletries

– Blankets

13-year-old SENDSCOPE pupil, Khalen, said that they also bought tents for the people in Turkey and Syria, to give them somewhere to live.

Defne Turkish BBQ Restaurant arranged for a truck to collect the donated items and delivered them to London. The donations were then loaded on a plane which was headed for Turkey.

Miss Walsh, principal of SENDSCOPE, said: “Our students will continue to support with the earthquake appeal and connect with those affected by this awful tragedy.”
