With great dismay Henkel has been following the news of the earthquake disaster in Türkiye and Syria, which has claimed the lives of thousands of people. Help is urgently needed. Therefore, Henkel has decided on an ad-hoc emergency aid package of 1 million euros, in collaboration with the Fritz Henkel Stiftung Foundation. This includes urgently needed donations in-kind, product donations and financial aid, which will go to internationally active aid organizations, such as Aktion Deutschland Hilft, I.S.A.R International Search and Rescue and International Red Cross. On Tuesday, February 7, the company had announced its first aid package of 100,000 euros, which has now been increased by another 900,000 euros in view of the scale of the disaster.
"We are deeply shocked by the terrible disaster in Türkiye and Syria. Our thoughts are with the many thousands of victims, their families and friends. It is now important that we as an international community provide unbureaucratic assistance so that the emergency forces on the ground can be equipped with the necessary resources," says Carsten Knobel, CEO of Henkel.
Furthermore, employee donation campaigns are planned in some countries.
