The earthquake in Turkey affected Syva’s collaborators

More than 35,000 people are dead and thousands more injured after a powerful magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Turkey last Monday, Feb. 6, made the whole world shudder and it goes without saying that we at Syva are particularly touched by the situation.
Although our colleagues in our Turkish subsidiary are physically safe and sound, some of them have lost family members.

From Syva we are wholeheartedly with our colleagues and The Turkish population. We want to express our support in this difficult time. We continue daily to analyse the situation and we evaluate with our contact in Turkey, how we can best support them.

We are in constant contact with Selcuk Aras, our manager in Turkey, and at the last news, we must deplore the death of many Turkish Vets and animal health professionals.

A tragedy when we know how important they are in these situations of destruction of entire infrastructures, towns, and villages, to help fight diseases that strike animals and spread to humans more quickly in these circumstances where everything is lacking.


Geçtiğimiz hafta, 6 Şubat Pazartesi günü Türkiye’yi vuran 7,8 büyüklüğündeki güçlü depremin ardından, 35.000’den fazla insanın hayatını kaybetmesi ve binlerce kişinin yaralanması ve tüm dünyayı çok üzdü ve Syva olarak bizler de bu durumdan oldukça etkilendik.

Fiziksel olarak güvende ve iyi olmalarına rağmen, Syva Türkiye çalışanlarımızdan aile üyelerini kaybedenler olmuştur.

Syva Türkiye çalışanlarımız ve Türk halkıyla, tüm kalbimizle birlikteyiz. Bu zor zamanda desteğimizi ifade etmek istiyoruz. Durumu analiz etmeye devam ediyoruz ve Türkiye’deki arkadaşlarımızla onları en iyi nasıl destekleyebileceğimizi değerlendiriyoruz.

Türkiye’deki müdürümüz Selçuk Aras ile sürekli iletişim halindeyiz ve gelen haberlerde çok sayıda Veteriner Hekim ve hayvan sağlığı profesyonelinin hayatlarını kaybettiğini öğrenmek de bizleri son derece üzmüştür.

Şehir, kasaba ve köylerdeki alt yapının büyük hasar gördüğü, oldukça zor bu trajik koşullarda, hayvan ve insanlarda hızlı yayılabilecek hastalıklar konusunda yardımcı olmamızın önemini biliyoruz.
