In addition to this, there were also other independently organized campaigns by various Business Groups and Freudenberg sites. For example, Vibracoustic organized fundraising campaigns at the sites in Bursa, Cerkezköy and Gemlik to collect relief supplies for the affected regions and donated an additional 75,000 euros to the Turkish Red Crescent.
Shortly after the disaster, Freudenberg as a Group had made a concrete contribution to the relief effort, providing 250,000 euros in donations to Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V. and the Red Cross/Turkish Red Crescent.
“Our hearts go out to all those affected and their families, especially those who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones. We hope that rescue operations will be carried out quickly and effectively and that everything possible will be done to help the victims at this difficult time,” Freudenberg CEO Dr. Mohsen Sohi said about the situation.
Freudenberg has maintained business relations with Turkey since the company was founded in 1849. In total, we employ almost 2,000 people at 14 locations and are represented by six Business Groups in Turkey.
