On February 6, two massive earthquakes hit Syria and Turkey. Thanks to the generous support of partner and associate contributions and substantial matching gifts, Marcum Foundation donated $54,055 to UNICEF’s earthquake relief fund to help children and families impacted by this disaster.
Through Marcum Foundation’s donation, UNICEF was able to provide:
- 70+ tons of life-saving supplies were delivered from the global hubs
- 188,846 people accessed primary healthcare
- 140,286 children accessed formal and non-formal education
- 765,794 people accessed WASH services
- 80,226 people benefitted from humanitarian cash assistance

The extent of loss and devastation as a result of the earthquakes remains, but through the support of Marcum Foundation, many children and families have received the care and attention they need to survive.
