AN OPEN LETTER
-- From The Light Millennium


To the Prime Minister of Turkey
Mr. Recep Tayyip ERDOGAN


Date:
December 29, 2004, New York



Dear Prime Minister Erdogan:


Reference:
A call for relief efforts for the victims of Tidal wave disaster in South Asia


I am writing this e-mail to seek Turkey's friendly hand to help those who
have been affected by the tsunami disaster in South-East Asia...

I am fully aware of Turkey's priorities and your cabinet's hard-work, such as the meetings with the Europan Union, Cyprus, domestic issues...

I am confident that you have done your best and will continue to do so regarding the above (particularly the first two issues)...


* * * * *


However, I am also of the opinion that Turkey should remember the relieving results of the help provided by the international community post the Izmit earthquake, and should consider reaching out now to those victims of another disaster in the far away lands: Victims of the tsunami disaster in South-East Asia. Turkey, as always should lead and promote the efforts of help to disaster victims; you or one of your ministers can and should initiate and promote to provide RELIEF funds & urgent help to citizens of the affected countries, such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia. India, Taiwan...

* * * * *

Our minds are still fresh with memories of Turkey's last major earthquake. We all were very grateful to be supported by the neighboring and far distant countries towards our relief effort... In return, I am confident that any support by Turkey towards the relief of tsunami victims will be greatly appreciated by all. Not only the affected countries citizens and governments, but all members of the international community will heed this effort, and it will generate much good will and respect towards Turkey and Turkish government in the World.

With your start sign, without doubt, in Turkey, Europe, in the United States as well as all over the world, all Turks and Turkish organizations and communities will try to bring their potential to help our sisters, brothers and their families in Asia.

If we care for others, others will care for us, too...

Since we are the descendents of Mevlana & Yunus Emre, this is the time we should unite globally, and help one another in every way we can...

As we all know, if we care for others, others will care for us, too...

On a personal note, I will be leaving for Sri Lanka from New York on January 9, 2005 with a stop-over in Istanbul, on January 10-11. I am eager to pick up tokens of this friendship/help effort to take some of the below urgent needs personally to Sri Lanka. Below, I have included the list for "Urgent Needs" to my mail for your convenience.

Prime Minister Erdogan, thank you so much for your consideration and time... I do hope that you will heed this request and respond favorably by calling upon all those within Turkey that will answer this call.

The future is in our hands if we work hand in hand and this is the exact time to demonstrate that we can...

Sincerely Yours,

Additional notes:

1) The reason I have written this 'open letter' in English is, hoping that this may inspire other country leaders, corporations CEO's and foundations for a similar effort in each and every country as well as individuals globally.

2) January 1; is declared as the mourning day in Sri Lanka. Therefore, this is also "A CALL TO ALL", who are concerned and cared 'others' may to donate %10 percent of their New Year Evening entertainment budgets/spendings towards to the most effected countries by the TSUNAMI DISASTER via (for Turkish-Americans) the ATAA.ORG, Washington, DC; Tsunami Relief Fund or for the rest; the SARVODAYA ORGANIZATION DISASTER RELIEF (local NGO) in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
