MEXC Global is restarting its community responsibility efforts and expanding its assistance to contain the recent forest fires in Turkey. The charity task force of the exchange platform wants to support the Turkish forest fire situation in this catastrophic time.
In July 2021, over 60 fires spread in 21 Turkish cities. Several areas such as Manisa, Muğla, Adana and Kayseri continue to experience disastrous moments. According to the European Forest Fire Information System, around 160,000 hectares of land are affected by the raging forest fires. Fire disasters continue to mount as local authorities in the country implement evacuation strategies for their citizens.
MEXC is at the forefront of helping forest fire survivors and is again donating a substantial amount, this time through the Turkish Philanthropy Fund and the Ogem-Vak Foundation.
MEXC joins the Turkish Philanthropy Fund
The Turkish Philanthropy Funds (TPF) acts as a trustworthy foundation that caters to the needs of Turkish and American communities. The foundation is constantly working to maximize the impact of its donations while maintaining transparency and minimal overheads. TPF plans to raise $ 250,000 as part of its campaign for the Wildfire Relief Fund in Turkey in 2021.
The campaign is nearing its goal as the current donation amount is $ 185,000. TPF will work with organizations like MEXC to send donations to places in need of urgent money. Essentially, the survivors are helped with food, shelter, fuel, clean water and medicine. In addition, each donor, including MEXC Global, will receive a detailed report highlighting the use of the funds.
The Ogem-Vak Foundation is another organization that is trying to help with the devastating forest fires in Turkey. It recognizes that forests offer various benefits, including air purification, wood, oxygen circulation, biodiversity, habitat and nutrient cycling, which is why the foundation is focusing its afforestation efforts in areas affected by forest fires. MEXC plans to donate several seedlings to the Ogem-Vak Foundation to support reforestation efforts in the Muğla region.
