Our call to bring together those who have the opportunity and those who need support, received a response more than we expected. Tens of thousands of food packages purchased from People's Grocery were delivered to families in need and continue to be delivered. Likewise, since the beginning of Ramadan, we have been instrumental in the distribution of more than two hundred thousand iftar meals on the digital platform. We called on the young people to support the fruit harvest voluntarily so that the producer's product does not remain on the branch due to the coronavirus epidemic. Hundreds of young people came running. Our compatriots, who were not satisfied with this, asked us to implement the 'pending invoice' application in order to bring solidarity to a new dimension. I am really proud of them. We also thank the people of Izmir, who are unable to work and take bread to their homes, to take the initiative in paying the water bills of our fellow citizens, who inspired this practice, Mr. Ekrem İmamoğluI also thank you.”
