We donated 430 generators to the victims of war in Ukraine

Although it is rarely seen in the media, the difficulties experienced as a result of the war that has been going on for months continue.

We wish the generators to be a hope for the war-torn Ukrainian people and that the war will end as soon as possible.

Little Esin’s eye surgery was performed

Little Esin Lina Erbaş, who was diagnosed with an eye tumor, unfortunately lost her right eye. Esin’s family applied to our association and said that they wanted to have their daughter fitted with removable prosthetic eyes, but they could not afford this high-cost operation. We took action immediately, hoping to help little Esin get used to this new situation and to prevent some of the traumas she will experience during her growth. After one of our donors took on the expenses of Esin’s prosthetic eye and operation, little Esin’s procedures were completed on 31.10.2022 and she got a prosthetic eye. We will continue to share with you the good news of Essin, whose prosthetic eye will take its final form after 1 month of controls.
