SM Foundation help victims of quake-hit Türkiye, Syria

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Türkiye and northwest Syria has created an urgent humanitarian crisis. The disaster was followed by a magnitude 6.3 earthquake, hitting southern Turkiye, which led to additional casualties and damages. It drawed relief and aid workers from around the world.

And to help victims of the catastrophic earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, SM Foundation Inc. (SMFI) sent aid through the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) last February 27, 2023.

SMFI’s Connie Angeles hands the donation to PRC chairperson Dick Gordon (third from left). Joining the turnover are PRC Governor Ernesto Isla and PRC Secretary General Dr. Gwen Pang.

PRC volunteers prepare to ship 200 units of gasoline generators donated by SM Foundation for quake-hit Türkiye and Syria.

Represented by SM Foundation Health and Medical Programs Executive Director Connie Angeles, SMFI handed 200 units of gasoline generators to PRC to provide power to the quake-stricken Türkiye and Syria.

Additionally, the social good arm of SM also donated ₱5 million to help address the needs of earthquake victims.
