As of the writing of this post, last month’s earthquake in Turkey and Syria killed more than 50,000 people. The World Health Organization estimates that the earthquake has impacted as many as 26 million others – including 1.4 million children. To make even the smallest difference, Benzel-Busch will match funds – dollar-for-dollar – for every donation to the Bridge to Turkey Fund.
Two powerful earthquakes struck Turkey at around 4:00 a.m. on Monday February 6, 2023, leaving tens of thousands injured, displaced, or missing. The rescue and recovery efforts continue after the most powerful earthquake to strike the region in almost a century – but they still need help from their friends.
The Tragedy Hits Close to Home
Members of our own Benzel-Busch team have family and loved ones who are still missing and others whose have lost everything. In times of great need, we all can play a part to ease the burden. Benzel-Busch is working with Bridge to Turkey Fund (BTF) to facilitate donations for earthquake victims. Donations to BTF will:
1. Provide immediate assistance with food, water and warmth
2. Provide immediate assistance for sheltering
3. Provide well-being for children’s health and education
These funds will go directly to relief services and will not be directed to the Turkish government. We are confident that those in need will receive the direct benefit of these proceeds.
Together We Can Help
Your consideration is greatly appreciated – and Benzel-Busch will match every dollar you donate, doubling the support we can give. If you feel moved to help, please donate using this link:
