A number of orphaned children who benefited from the institute participated in the vigil, in addition to the staff working in it, holding banners that read on some of them: “Our people in Turkey and Syria are our afflictions, your afflictions, and our blood is yours.”  In the blood donation hall, the organizers hung the Turkish and Syrian flags next to the Palestinian.  In a speech during the launch of the campaign, the association’s executive director, Iyad Al-Masry, said: “What happened in Turkey and Syria affected the entire Arab and Islamic nation.”  He explained that “the Palestinian people, through the campaign, show solidarity with their Turkish and Syrian counterparts, and call for mercy for the victims of the two countries.”  Al-Masri called on the Palestinians to express their “solidarity with the Turkish and Syrian peoples,” saying that today’s message is “a message of love and peace for all.”  At dawn on Monday, a 7.7-magnitude earthquake struck southern Turkey and northern Syria, followed hours later by another with a magnitude of 7.6 and hundreds of violent aftershocks, which left huge losses of lives and property in both countries.
