SHANGHAI, Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Trip.com Group, a leading global online travel services provider, is offering aid and assistance to help support victims of the devastating Turkey–Syria earthquakes that have affected communities throughout the country.
Trip.com Group has donated 3,400 emergency supply packages – including sleeping bags, folding beds, blankets, and moisture-proof mats in partnership with the Consulate General of the Republic of Türkiye in Shanghai.
The supplies will then be sent to Istanbul and Adana, where they will be distributed to affected communities to help with the recovery process.
CEO of Trip.com Group, Jane Sun, said, “We are deeply concerned about the widespread destruction caused by the earthquake and saddened to see so many people affected.
“As a global company, we are responsible for providing relief support in times of need. We urge businesses in the travel industry to collaborate and support the impacted communities and individuals in any way possible. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.”

In response, governmental bodies and companies worldwide have contributed to providing crucial support in the form of rescue and relief efforts.
