Through swift and decisive action, our volunteers provided several generators, water trucks, fireproof gloves, socks, and jackets kits to several survivors and more than 100 firefighters. A dozen families whose houses were burned in the fire received the donated goods and furniture. Our volunteers also reached out to animal shelters in the affected area and helped >200 animals find food and homes.
“Good morning everyone and good weekend,
As you know, while the forests of our country were burning, we entered into a solidarity as the Turkish finance and crypto money community.
I would like to thank Gate.io exchange, which I did not have the opportunity to thank during the hustle and bustle on the field, for their contributions.

Turkey has suffered greatly from the wildfires. Gate.io is privileged that we could do at least something on our part to help our Turkish friends. However, the primary focus should be on the nine amazing people who stepped up to help their countrymen in need.
