ESOMAR community will support Syrian and Turkish insights and analytics professionals and their families through ESOMAR Foundation Researchers in Need Programme.
A great tragedy occurred in Turkey and Syria on February 6th when a massive earthquake shook the vast southeast region of these two countries, impacting dozens of cities, collapsing more than thousands of buildings, and killing hundreds of thousands of people. Earthquakes are still shaking the region, at higher magnitudes than 5.0, contributing to more ruin and fatalities.
Now, more than a month later, the impacted communities are still living in the streets, with no access to water or electricity, and trying to rebuild some semblance of normalcy for themselves. Our research community has many field agents in the region who have been impacted. We want to help them now, as the outcry has stopped and the world has moved on, and we can utilize our connections with the international research community to help our fellow humans.
This is where the ESOMAR Community, can come in to assist and raise the necessary funds to help colleagues survive this disaster. Every day, contributions run scarcer and attention from the global media disappears, but these people are still homeless, hungry, and have no access to basic human resources.

As the unspeakable tragedy of the Russian invasion of Ukraine unfolds, it’s time for the European advertising community to come forward and help our Ukrainian friends in any way it can.
That’s why PTBRiO and SAR in Poland are launching AdAid.eu – a platform connecting Ukrainian advertising professionals with employers from other European countries.
Whether you are an ad agency, a media agency, a production company, or a client, AdAid.eu lets you post any job vacancies you may have – on-site or remote
As you know we are facing a horrible situation in Ukraine, and on our border. Many people try to find in Poland a shelter where they can feel safe. Among these people there are many professionals belonging to our global research/ ad/ marketing industry. In Poland we have organised a site to help them find a new job, and hope for a normal life. Together with PTBRiO and SAR in Poland we would kindly like to ask you to send to all your contacts in Ukraine information about this initiative. All they need to do is to go to this site: https://adaid.eu/
“(…) We stand in solidarity with Ukraine! We want to help our neighbors live as normal as possible in the face of war and emigration. (…) We are creating a platform with job opportunities in the marketing communications sector, but we are open to any assistance initiatives from other entities and organizations.”
– Paweł Tyszkiewicz, managing director SAR
