RENOLIT donates 100,000 euros for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria
15 February 2023 – Faced with the devastating consequences of the earthquakes that occurred in south-eastern Turkey and in parts of Syria on 6 February 2023, the Executive Board and the owner family have decided to donate 100,000 euros to the nonprofit society Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V. on behalf of all RENOLIT locations. The association is an alliance of renowned German aid organisations with the aim of helping people in need together, quickly and in a coordinated manner. In Turkey and Syria, 20 Aktion Deutschland Hilft aid organisations are currently providing humanitarian aid to the people.
“We are stunned and saddened by the dramatic news reaching us from the affected areas,” says Michael Kundel, Chief Executive Officer of RENOLIT Group. “Our sympathy goes out to all the people who have been victims of this tragedy. Many employees – whether in Turkey or in Germany – have relatives in the destroyed areas or come from these regions. Therefore, we feel particularly connected to the people affected and at the same time obliged to make a financial contribution in view of the catastrophic situation. As a sign of solidarity, we would therefore like to support the people there with our donation."
