After the virus showed itself in Turkey, our society quickly takes the matter in their hands and started a series of operations regarding people’s health and their livelihood, when restrictions came to the scene we coordinated with government officials and took on tasks to improve citizens well-being, I as a volunteer, also took part in one of those tasks which are mainly providing food, hygiene, and miscellaneous goods to those who cant afford to buy them and people that are subject to restrictions, such as elderly, being part of something like this is an unmatched experience that a person can find nowhere, making people smile and bringing joy to people are things that every person needs to experience, as Mother Theresa said: “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

Stay safe, stay healthy
