King Charles visits kebab shop to support Turkey earthquake relief efforts

King Charles expressed his condolences to London’s Turkish communities who have been collecting aid for the victims of the earthquake in Turkey. During his visit, the monarch stopped by the Mangal Kebab Restaurant in Hounslow, west London, where he joked with the chefs and tasted traditional Turkish tea. The king spent the day chatting with volunteers and collecting blankets, food, and warm clothing for those affected by the earthquake. He was accompanied by the Turkish Ambassador to the UK, Umit Yalcin, and was visibly moved when visiting a support center for Syrians living in Trafalgar Square.

Turkey's earthquake crisis

Last week’s earthquake in Turkey was the country’s worst disaster for a century, with a death toll of 35,000. Thousands of historic buildings, apartment blocks, and shops were reduced to rubble, and emergency response efforts have been criticized as slow or non-existent. While many survivors have been rescued, the number of dead continues to rise, and experts warn that the window for rescues is closing. The disaster has also taken a toll in neighboring Syria, where over 5,000 people have died, bringing the confirmed death toll to 41,132.

Hope amid tragedy

Despite the tragedy, stories of miraculous rescues have been emerging on social media, with videos showing crowds cheering and clapping. Many volunteers and aid organizations are working hard to support those affected by the disaster, collecting supplies and providing shelter to those in need. There is still much work to be done, but with the help of compassionate individuals like King Charles, the affected communities can begin to rebuild and recover.
