The ceremony was attended by representatives of international and Turkish institutions and press members.
As part of the “Erenler Hırkası” project, implemented with the slogan “When an Orphan Smiles, the Whole World Smiles,” 110 orphans were provided with winter and summer clothes and sportswear and were offered treats.
In his speech at the ceremony, İsmail Gürlek, Nur-Sultan Coordinator, noted that the project in question was a responsibility project, and said, “Children are the guarantee of our lives, our world, and our countries. With this awareness, we feel happy when we interact closely with them and witness their joy.”
Stating that they distributed a total of 1200 food packages in Kazakhstan during Ramadan as part of the “Erenler Sofrası” program, Gürlek said, “We thought that we should dress children in ‘Erenler Hırkası’ as a continuation of the ‘Erenler Sofrası’ project. In addition to our ongoing projects in the fields of science, technology, agriculture, infrastructure, and health, such social responsibility projects mean a lot to us.”
Children who received their gift packages had fun in the special area built in the front yard.
