Our team is deeply saddened, and our hearts go out to all those affected by the 7.8 and 7.5 magnitude earthquakes that rocked southeastern Türkiye and northwestern Syria on February 6, 2023.
EB5 Capital has donated funds to AKUT Search and Rescue Association and World Central Kitchen (WCK) in response to this devastating disaster. AKUT is Türkiye’s first search and rescue association founded by a group of mountain climbers in 1996. The funds will help purchase heavy machinery and medical equipment to support AKUT’s on-the-ground search and rescue efforts. Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, WCK’s Relief Team is distributing meals for survivors and first responders in the region. The organization has served more than 60 million fresh meals to people impacted by natural disasters and other crises around the world.
If any of our international investors, attorneys, and other EB-5 stakeholders want to provide relief in a meaningful and effective way, our Turkish Director of Investor Relations, Elif Egeli Izmiri, who is based in Izmir, Türkiye, can provide guidance on which local groups are involved in the relief effort. Please contact Elif at firstname.lastname@example.org. We stand with the people of Türkiye and Syria.
