Turkey-Syria earthquake appeal to the property industry

The death toll continues to add up, surpassing 33,000 with masses of people still trapped under rumble and rescue workers putting their own live at risk trying to free as many survivors as possible. In the aftermath of the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake, thousands have been injured and displaced from their homes, desperate for essentials such as fresh water and food, as food stocks and supplies run low and many on the brink of starvation.

To help those who have been impacted by this tragic event, Agents Giving in conjunction with The Guild of Property Professionals are urging the property industry to join them in collecting funds to be able to send urgent live-saving supplies to those who have lost everything.

David Newnes, Agents Giving chairman, said: “We are supporting the DEC charities and their local partners to scale up their response and reach more people. The Government is matching our donations pound-for-pound up to £5m, so we are eager to spread the word to anyone within the property sector, asking for help to raise as much money for the cause as possible.  A £10 donation could provide blankets to keep two people warm, while £25 could provide emergency food for a family for ten days, £50 will provide much-need emergency shelter for two families.”

Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals, added: “We are asking everyone within the sector to band together to assist those who are in desperate need. Masses have been impacted by the earthquake and the need for aid continues to grow as the as the situation unfolds.”
