Fwd: Invitation: Zeynep Karagöz, Monday, 20 March 2023, 19:30 (Istanbul; GMT +3) / 17:30 (Berlin, GMT +1) / 11:30 a.m. (New York, EST)

Dear friends and colleagues,

I hope this email finds you well. As you may be aware, a devastating M7.8 earthquake struck southern and central Turkey, as well as northern and western Syria, on 6 February 2023. This has created significant challenges, particularly for NGOs that are on the ground and working to provide support to those affected.

With this in mind, I am delighted to forward and share an invitation with you for the upcoming lecture "How to make a difference: Free 3D printed devices for earthquake victims" featuring Zeynep Karagöz from Robotel Türkiye, which I am co-organizing with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mara Mills (NYU Center for Disability Studies) and Prof. Dr. Robert Stock (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin). This event aims to raise awareness about the invaluable work that Robotel Türkiye is undertaking to assist earthquake victims who have lost limbs.

I strongly encourage you to attend this lecture to learn more about Robotel Türkiye's efforts, the challenges they are facing, and the ways in which we can support their work. This event promises to be insightful and informative, and most importantly, it is for a good cause.

Thank you, and I hope to see you at the lecture.

Best wishes,

Melike Şahinol

How to make a difference: Free 3D printed devices for earthquake victims

Zeynep Karagöz Robotel Türkiye

Monday, 20 March 2023, 19:30 (Istanbul; GMT +3) / 17:30 (Berlin, GMT +1) / 11:30 a.m. (New York, EST)

This lecture offers an opportunity to learn more about our work at Robotel Türkiye, which I am heading, in providing free 3D-printed prostheses for children who lack access to such devices. I will focus the impact it has had on the lives of those we serve. Our primary focus has been on providing mechanical hands, arms, and fingers to children, although we have also served adults upon request. However, recent events have led us to extend our services to include shoulder mechanisms, adult models, and orthotic prosthesis devices.

On 6 February 2023, at 04:17 TRT (01:17 UTC), a M7.8 earthquake struck southern and central Turkey and northern and western Syria. In this lecture, I will focus on our efforts in the earthquake region in Turkey, where we have received numerous requests for our services. I will discuss the impact of our work in the region and the urgent need for volunteers and financial support to continue our efforts. Our organization is currently facing a significant increase in demand, and we cannot continue our vital work without additional resources.

I will discuss the challenges and successes of our work, and the ways in which interested individuals can get involved and make a difference. With your support, we can continue to serve those in need and make a positive impact on their lives.

Therefore, I would like to call for financial support from individuals, organizations, and institutions who share our vision of improving the lives of those who lack access to prosthetic devices. *Donate by following this link: * . Your contributions will go a long way in helping us provide free prostheses to those who need them the most. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that everyone has access to the medical care they deserve.
