Urgently calling all ZALORIANs to stand together in solidarity to bring HELP and HOPE to those struck by this tragedy in this trying period.
A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkiye and its neighboring country, Syria, on February 6, 2023. The first earthquake occurred 34 km west of Gaziantep at 04:17 AM local time and caused widespread damage in Turkey and Syria.
ZALORA partners with Singapore Red Cross (affiliated to Turkish Red Crescent via International Red Cross) to fundraise in response to the Turkey-Syria Earthquake. Your donation will go toward supporting the needs of those affected by the earthquake, including emergency shelter, first aid and food.
Embassies and NPOs are overwhelmed by the influx of in-kind donations and have temporarily suspended such collection drives. Instead, they are calling for monetary donations that will offer the impacted immediate help in the fastest and most practical way.
This donation drive is open to all ZALORIANs in the region. Any international VISA and MasterCard credit cards may be used to donate on the giving.sg platform. The donations are displayed and transacted in Singapore Dollars and the minimum donation sum is SGD 10. You may wish to contribute to this cause individually or pooled collectively as a group on this page. This fundraising drive will end on 1st March 2023.
ZALORA is committed to our Force for Good values as we extend a helping hand to the impacted through our partner organizations.
(Note: Donations to overseas efforts are non tax-deductible. Receipts will only be issued upon request.)
We call for your support towards the Singapore Red Cross (SRC)'s humanitarian response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria. Your donation will go towards supporting the needs of those affected by the earthquake, including emergency shelter, first aid and food.
SRC has earlier pledged USD $50,000 each in humanitarian aid to the Turkish Red Crescent (TRC) and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) to directly support their ongoing relief efforts.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives and injury, as well as damage to property and livelihoods, arising from the devastating disaster, and are committed to supporting the emergency relief and recovery operations," said Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General/CEO of Singapore Red Cross, "We hope the people of Singapore will support our fundraising appeal, to bring hope and help to affected communities in Turkey and Syria."
Please make a donation during this time of need.
