We all know how severe the earthquake in Syria and Turkey was, and thousands of lives have been lost already. To help the earthquake victims, Samsung has announced that it will donate $3 million to Turkey and other help, such as free repairs and appliances.
The South Korean firm will donate $1.5 million in cash to Turkey Disaster and Risk Management Agency. In addition, the company will donate home appliances for temporary shelters for earthquake victims, portable ultrasound diagnostic devices that can be used at disaster locations, free Galaxy tablets for the education of the children in the affected families, and free home appliance repair vehicles that have goods worth $1.5 million.
Samsung employees will conduct voluntary fundraising activities to support people in the affected areas in Turkey. These donations are in line with the company’s earlier donation efforts to help people in natural disasters. The company donated $1 million in 2010 after the Haiti earthquake, $0.76 million in 2011 during the Japan earthquake, and $1 million in 2013 after the Philippines typhoon.
