Kids' Lab@Earthquake Region – Kahramanmaraş, Turkey (2023)

On 6th of February 2023, Turkey had devastating earthquakes with more than 50,000 death tolls according to official numbers. As BASF Turk, through our Volunteers Club campaign, we supported the supply of immediate relief materials like shelters, hygiene products and food for the affected people. Soon after the earthquake, “Red Kids Organization” of Turkey opened a children support center in Kahramanmaraş – epicenter of the earthquake. Just on April 23rd, National Children's Day, they launched the center with a festival for the kids in the area who are living in tents. And as volunteer colleagues, we opened a Kids’ Lab booth in the festival area and hosted 400 kids on the same day.
