Emergency in Turkey and Syria: Generali Global Fundraising
14 February 2023
The most powerful earthquake recorded in Turkey since 1939 along with harsh weather conditions and an on-going cholera outbreak are heavily impacting millions of people in Turkey and Syria that are now depending on humanitarian assistance.
More than 30,000 deaths have been reported following the massive earthquake that struck on February 6th and this number is expected to rise significantly while rescue efforts move ahead.
Generali immediately reacted to the emergency with a dedicated fund of €500,000 that will be devolved to UNICEF, which is currently assisting in the rescue efforts with emergency items including food, clean water, family and baby hygiene kits, clothing, emergency medical supplies and safe spaces (shelter for families and children with childcare services), and to other local programmes, selected together with Generali Sigorta, in order to better support the people and the communities impacted by the devastating earthquake.
As Generali we believe in the importance of our network and in the power of People helping People and we are now launching a Global Fundraising Campaign to support these initiatives assisting the people of Turkey and Syria in overcoming this crisis. These donations will be matched 1:1 by the Group for emergency support in the impacted areas.
By participating in these efforts, we will be able to actively help those most in need in this incredibly difficult time.
Please feel free to share the donation page with your family and friends.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
