The first earthquake shook southern Turkey and Syria on 6 February 2023 with a magnitude of 7.8 on the Richter scale. A second quake on the same day reached a magnitude 7.5. It was followed by numerous aftershocks, some of which were very severe.

Two weeks after the devastating first impact, further quakes of 6.4 and 5.8 on the Richter scale shook the region yet again. The death toll of this catastrophe has already exceeded the 50,000 mark and left thousands injured and homeless.

Aktion Deutschland Hilft, a humanitarian aid organization based in Germany, is very active in the region, trying to help those most in need. SCHOMÄCKER has instantly decided to support this good cause with a donation of €2500.00.

Though our donation, we would like to contribute towards alleviating the distress in the affected areas and support the invaluable help of the rescue organisations. We would also like to express our sympathy for those suffering and our solidarity with both our Turkish neighbours and employees here in Melle and our business partners and their families in Turkey.

Aktion Deutschland Hilft is an amalgamation of various German aid organisations, including Johanniter and Malteser. The German oranisation collects  donations for emergency aid - including shelter, food and drinking water for the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

The work of Aktion Deutschland Hilft will remain of immense importance in the coming weeks and months to ensure that those who have been rescued are accommodated in emergency shelters and provided with initial supplies.

We hope that SCHOMÄCKER’s contribution to this undertaking supports the enormous effort of the people on the ground!
