Last week, we heard the devastating news that two deadly earthquakes, of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6, respectively, took over 6,400 multi-story buildings to the ground in both Turkey and neighbouring Syria, causing mass destruction and huge loss of life.
The latest figures show that across the two Nations over 33,000 fatalities have been reported, with that figure growing on a daily basis. In light of this, the Turkish Government has declared a state of emergency and a level 4 alert issuing an appeal to the international community to rush aid to help.
IAB Europe wishes to show support for all those affected, and share solidarity with our colleagues at IAB Turkey who have called upon our International IAB community and their corporate members to support in any way possible.
If you would like to send financial support, please consider the following two state-approved organisations that are coordinating aid in the affected area:
