TUI has set up an appeal through its TUI Care Foundation to help victims of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

The operator is matching every donation made to its new Emergency Relief Fund Appeal, which is running in partnership with UNICEF.

Relief Fund will support UNICEF’s emergency relief efforts on the ground, where help is needed most and TUI says 100% of every donation will go directly to the emergency support. 

TUI said Turkey is an important destination and the operator send thousands of customers there every year. 

The foundation is urging people to help in the best effective way, which is through monetary donations rather than collecting items, as funds can be directed quickly and easily to ensure that support reaches those in need as soon as possible. 

TUI UK & Ireland Managing Director Andrew Flintham said: “We are devastated to hear of the scale of the disaster in Turkey and the massive impact it has had on thousands of people.

“As a travel provider who operates in the country, it is essential for us to contribute to relief efforts and help the people who have lost their homes and are in desperate need of support. 

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the earthquake.”
