Albayrak Group established Container Cities in Hatay and Gaziantep

In the 6th of February, 2023 Kahramanmaraş earthquake, we were there to help again. On the second day of the earthquake, we decided to establish a Container City. Our colleagues and volunteers were already rushing to the earthquake zone. As you can see, this reflex is a mission inherited from our Group’s history. While carrying out all these aids without expecting anything in return, our greatest strength comes from the historical mission of our group and the sacrifices of our colleagues,” he said.

No Tolerance for Disinformation

Obtaining accurate information from the first moments of the Disaster of the Century to ensure correct disaster communication was almost impossible. In the following hours, disinformation efforts by earthquake opportunists were witnessed.

Albayrak Media’s flagship outlets, Yeni Şafak, TVNET, GZT, and all press and broadcast brands, not only supported critical disaster communication but also set up a barrier against disinformation during the earthquake process.

This was equivalent to a patriotic duty for us. It is said, ‘Your competition is in goodness,’ and we followed this command without any hesitation,” he said.
