Türkiye-Syria Earthquakes Appeal

Let’s ensure that the people of Syria and Türkiye receive lifesaving support

I'm fundraising for Red Cross Türkiye-Syria Earthquakes Appeal by holding a special Good Friday Radio Broadcast on FOTW Radio.

I will be playing a special show of Turkish and Syrian songs, including the music of Altin Gün, Omar Souleyman, Santi &Tuğçe and Grup Pan, alongside our usual programming of Japanese pop songs (like ARASHI, King & Prince and Tomohisa Yamashita), Italo disco and 80s classics.

Some of this music is really inspiring and has cheered me up during dark times, and so I thought it would be a great opportunity to share it with my listeners and raise some money for Red Cross at the same time.

The money raised will help Red Cross Red Crescent teams provide immediate and longer-term relief to communities affected by the earthquakes.

I am broadcasting from Sydney, but I also have many listeners in Japan, so I am listing both our timezones, as well as Turkish and Syrian timezones:

• Sydney 5-7 pm

• Japan 4-6 pm

• Turkey/Syria 10am -12 pm

Please help me by donating to our fundraising page.

And you can listen to the show through the website 🎧

Thank you,

IJ Wilson

ARASHI's music contains a lot of warm messages. I pray that their songs will reach the hearts of everyone affected by the disaster and become the light of tomorrow.
