The donations made to the “Aid Campaign for Gaza” that was launched under the Presidency of Religious Affairs of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey are going full steam ahead. Within this scope, the officials of Ümraniye Municipality have made a donation of 36.894 TL.
Coming to the rescue of the victim and the destitute wherever they are in the world, Turkey launched an aid campaign for Gaza on the level of Presidency. The coordination of the aid campaign was given to the Presidency of Religious Affairs. It was aimed to send the aids collected at Governorates, Municipalities and all public institutions, to the people in Gaza.
As it is already known, a high number of people including children and women have lost their lives in the military operation that Israel started against Gaza and the residential areas occupied by the public were destroyed. As a result, such urgent problems as accommodation, starvation, lack of water and health issues and emergency humanitarian needs appeared.
Ümraniye Municipality has always mentioned the inhuman actions that Gaza has been exposed to since the attacks were launched, on every platform. It has prohibited the selling of the products that support this atrocity towards Muslims at the Social Facilities of the Municipality since the day it was opened. Also, during the holy month of Ramadan, prays were made for the people of Gaza at iftar meals where thousands of citizens came together. Within this scope, Ümraniye Municipality took its place in the aid campaign that was initiated for the victims in Gaza. All of the officials of the Municipality voluntarily supported this aid campaign. Within the framework of the campaign in which 1358 people contributed, a financial aid of 36.894 TL was collected.
Moreover, Trade Union of Workers of the Municipality and Special Administration did not forget about the people in Gaza and donated 4.301 TL for their benefit.
