ING has been active in Turkey for many years and has over 600 employees in the affected region. The majority of our colleagues there are safe and we are working with the team in Turkey to determine the best way to provide emergency humanitarian assistance. Local initiatives are already underway in several countries where ING is present and we plan to launch a global initiative as soon as possible. ING is also doing what is possible to continue supporting its customers in Turkey.
The Red Crescent is helping to pull people from under the rubble and provide first aid. They also shelter people who have lost their homes with blankets, tents, catering and mobile kitchens.
We thank you in advance.
