Henkel has donated an emergency aid package of €1 million, in collaboration with the Fritz Henkel Stiftung Foundation, to Türkiye and Syria after an earthquake devastated the region on February 6, 2023. This includes urgently needed donations in-kind, product donations, and financial aid, which will go to internationally active aid organizations, such as Aktion Deutschland Hilft, I.S.A.R International Search and Rescue, and International Red Cross. On February 7, 2023, the company had announced its first aid package of €100,000, which has now been increased by another €900,000 in view of the scale of the disaster.
"We are deeply shocked by the terrible disaster in Türkiye and Syria," said Carsten Knobel, CEO of Henkel. “Our thoughts are with the many thousands of victims, their families, and friends. It is now important that we as an international community provide unbureaucratic assistance so that the emergency forces on the ground can be equipped with the necessary resources.”
