The Kahramanmaras earthquake has been declared one of the largest disasters of the century with the death toll surpassing 40,000
FESPA member association ARED, the Turkish Outdoor and Industrial Advertisers Association and co-organiser of FESPA Eurasia, is giving direct support to victims of the Kahramanmaras earthquake by providing emergency shelters and longer-term accommodation for people made homeless by the recent disaster.
With donations from FESPA and association members, ARED has so far purchased 10 tents and installed them in the most affected regions to offer short-term shelter. Further donations are being used to purchase units which will be adapted to provide longer-term accommodation, suitable for around two years, for use until new housing is available. These will be located within a container town set up by the Sectoral Associations Federation (SEDEFED), a Turkish organisation representing over 12,000 businesses, of which ARED is a member. ARED will also design, produce and donate directional signage for the three container towns that SEDEFED is establishing in Adiyaman, Hatay and Maras.
With donations received so far, ARED has funds to provide over 30 units. The association is appealing to the wider FESPA community for further donations to increase the number of containers that can be supplied.
We really value your support at this time and thank those of you who are able to donate and contribute to this cause.
