Vistula Universities in solidarity with the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria

The academic community of Vistula Universities is shocked by the dimensions of the tragedy after the earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria. The death toll is growing. Many people are still trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings.

We express our solidarity with all those who suffered as a result of this disaster. We are in contact with Turkish students from the affected areas. These are extremely difficult times for them. We are with them and support them wholeheartedly.

Due to the unfolding drama, we appeal to students and employees of Vistula Universities to join the material collection of aid for the victims, which is organized by the Turkish Ambassador in Poland.

The collection will take place on February 8 – 10, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the main building of Vistula University.
