After the disaster experienced as a result of the Ezine Stream overflowing on August 11, the volunteers of the First Hope Association, who came to the Bozkurt district, deployed mobile hygiene vehicles to 4 points in the district. Volunteers are working with great devotion to meet the shower, toilet and laundry needs of the disaster victims and the personnel working in the field with mobile hygiene vehicles in the district, whose infrastructure has been severely damaged.

-“We get very positive reactions”

First Hope Association Coordinator Serhan Yeşil told Anadolu Agency (AA) that Turkey is in a disaster area, and they have experienced it by living.

Explaining that they established a search and rescue team within the association, Yeşil continued as follows:

“When we conduct research on earthquakes, food and drink can be supplied to the region, usually through the Red Crescent and other large NGOs. We saw that disaster survivors needed toilets, showers and clean laundry as infrastructure problems occurred in disasters. We started this application with the Denizli-Acıpayam earthquake. We first started with 1 vehicle and now we have 4 mobile hygiene vehicles serving within our association. We used these vehicles in the Elazig earthquake, the Dereli flood zone and the Izmir earthquake. We get very positive reactions from our citizens.”
