Meeting Needs donates £2000, will match fund up to £1,500
Events industry Charity Meeting Needs has made a donation of £2,000 to the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) on behalf of the UK events industry following the series of devastating earthquakes which have hit Turkey and North-West Syria.
DEC charities and their local partners are among the first responders in the area, working with locally-led relief efforts in Turkey and Syria. Immediate priorities are search and rescue, medical treatment for the injured, shelter for those who have lost their homes, heaters for spaces and winter kits with blankets, and warm clothes, and ensuring people have food and clean water.
Meeting Needs has also launched a match-funded fundraising campaign, where any funds donated will be doubled up to the total of £1,500.
