Biltema Foundation donates 10 million SEK - Earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria
One of Biltema Foundation's focus areas is providing help in crisis situations worldwide. Earthquakes along the eastern Anatolian plate that runs through Turkey and Syria have resulted in unimaginable devastation and an urgent humanitarian situation. It goes without saying for us at Biltema to be involved and help.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is already active in the region. Their operational team works hard to provide immediate support and to assess the situation, including finding the right needs and to be able to put the right actions going forward The initial phase is still critical and access to some areas is very difficult.
To support their work, Biltema Foundation donated 10 million SEK to MSF emergency fund on Wednesday.
"It’s a given for us at Biltema Foundation to contribute with help in this difficult situation. MSF has the experience and knowledge to operate in disaster areas to mitigate the humanitarian disaster that is currently underway.” - Adelina Voci, Biltema Foundation spokesperson.
