Turkey: USD 82 mln raised from the National Solidarity Campaign

More than USD 82 million was raised by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s National Solidarity Campaign to combat the new coronavirus.

The campaign began on Monday to raise funds to fight COVID-19, with the Turkish President donating seven months’ wages to the initiative.
