On Monday, February 6th, multiple devastating earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8 and 7.5 affected 10 cities in Turkiye and 14 million people in the region. Close to 10,000 buildings were destroyed, leaving over 80,000 injured, and causing the death toll to rise to over 20,000 people. There are still thousands of people unaccounted for.
Many have lost family, friends, and loved ones, leaving people homeless during cold and fierce winter conditions. Local and international aid programs have been dispatched to save lives and help with the recovery efforts.
Anatolia Inc. has formed an emergency fund, reaching out to global business partners, employees, and the public to support the survivors and all affected people. We have partnered with Care Canada to facilitate donations and deliver the raised funds to those in need
Anatolia is initiating this fundraiser with a donation of $100,000 and will increase up to $250,000 in matched contributions, with a total goal of $500,000 raised. $35,000 has also been provided in support through our subsidiary in Turkiye directly to AFAD Central Disaster and Emergency Response Agency.
We want to sincerely thank everyone for their valuable donations to help support the rescue efforts in this tragic event. Please share this message to bring awareness to this initiative.
