The devastating earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria last week have left us all shaken. Building Markets’ long-time presence in Türkiye has brought the disaster close to home. More than half of the 2,500 small businesses in our Türkiye network are located in areas that were devastated, and while our staff are fully accounted for, homes and loved ones have been lost.
We know many of you are wondering how to help. Now’s the chance to hear directly from our team on the ground in Türkiye about what’s happening beyond the news and get key insights into immediate needs.
Register to join an insider conversation with Building Markets CEO, Radha Rajkotia, and Bora Arican, Türkiye Country Lead. The conversation will cover what we know about the current situation across affected areas in Türkiye and Syria and our understanding of the needs of our network and the wider community. We will also discuss the essential role local businesses play in emergency response and recovery, and how Building Markets’ partners are working on the ground now to provide food and other urgent relief. The conversation will be open to your questions.
