In solidarity with Turkey and Syria

Dear Students and Staff of our Academic Community,

we have been shocked ever since we learned of the catastrophic earthquake and aftershocks in Turkey and the rest of the world, which killed thousands of people.

The Wrocław Business University, along with the other universities in the Vistula Group of Universities (GUV), has been in contact with students in the affected areas and our thoughts are with all those whose families have been affected by the tragedy.

We know that these are difficult times for many of you.

Expressing our commitment to help and support those affected, together with GUV, we invite students and staff to join us in collecting essential items, which we will forward to the relevant authorities of the Republic of Turkey in Warsaw and the charitable institutions involved.

Place of collection:
