We believe that our success is not just down to effective project delivery; equally important is our corporate commitment to making positive changes through our work, helping people solve their problems, enhance their lives and protect the environment.
Working ethically and with sensitivity toward social, cultural, economic and environmental issues
Our teams often work with disadvantaged people, such as refugees, those with special needs and the poor. As a result, we are aware of the kinds of social, economic and cultural problems people can face in their everyday lives. This interaction has fueled the responsibility we feel towards disadvantaged groups and our desire to help them reintegrate into the communities in which they live, raising their capacities and offering them opportunities for education and well-being.
On February 6, 2023, two earthquakes of 7.8 and 6.3 magnitudes struck the southeastern region of Türkiye. The earthquakes caused the death of more than 50.000 people and destroyed 11 cities, leaving millions left without homes. Our volunteers quickly took action after the earthquake and prepared aid packages containing diapers, baby food, clothes, food, blankets, hygiene materials and toys. We delivered these aids to the region through our volunteers as well as institutions such as ILO and ASAM.
With the close coordination we established with UCIM, we were able to donate a special food for babies with disabilities and those who are in the process of adaptation after the wreckage, and we sent it to our working partner in the field to distribute 3 pallets of products. We ensured that a lost baby, who had been found in Adana, was delivered to his family. We witnessed the birth of the twins of a pregnant earthquake survivor, whom we admitted to Ankara City Hospital, and we shared the happiness of the family.
We supported families who migrated to Ankara from the earthquake zone to find a house and complete the necessary items. We confirmed the information of several people in the field and were reached out to the relevant authorities. We followed the procurement process of these needs.
We also contacted our international donors and started our coordination processes. Thanks to our volunteers who visited the region, we had the chance to closely observe the needs of the people in the region.
