I am so lucky to work with such charitable and humble peopleEdward Gumm, HR Director, IQPC UK
Last week our Charity & Culture Club met to discuss our initiatives and ideas for 2023. We usually work with and support numerous good causes throughout the year, as individuals and collectively. A fair proportion of that meeting was spent discussing the awful situation in Turkey and Syria following the earthquakes. Our discussion was on how we can help and what can we do NOW.
One of our amazing employees, Rizwan Bhana, already does brilliant work sponsoring up to 2000 orphans across the region but also works with One Nation to help get much needed aid and support to regions in crisis.
Riz kindly shared a list of aid items that One Nation are collecting and taking to the earthquake struck regions. We therefore mobilised our great volunteers to help us with getting together as many donations as possible for this Thursday.
One Nation supports orphans and widows and with the recent earthquake disaster they are struggling with the items listed below:
- New or Fairly New Clothing and Footwear (please remember its winter in Syria)
- Toiletries and Nappies
- Blankets and Duvets
- Tents and Sleeping Bags
- Lighting (Solar and Battery)
- Halal Tinned Food
- Rice, Pasta, Noodles
- Oil and Flour
Below is a little picture of the donations that we have on the floor I sit on :
People have donated blankets, warm clothes, tinned food, and a huge number of children’s items (clothing, nappies, toys etc).
I would just like to state how proud I am to work with people like Riz and the rest of the members of our charity club. This will probably only be a drop in the ocean considering the awful devastation, however, I am true believer of the fact that many people want to help and show our respect and solidarity to the people affected but often don’t know how. Why not contact One Nation and see how you might be able to help. Please see the link to the One Nation website – https://onenationuk.org/
