It is a period of serious damage all over the world. People could not find food, so to speak. This is where we stepped in. We made these contributions by our own means, we did all these studies with our own means. Those processes are over, but we didn't have the opportunity to raise donations or receive contributions from citizens. We had the opportunity to postpone the debts of tradesmen within the framework of the laws. We paid great attention to the water issue. Because of our debt, we did not cut the water especially in dwellings so that our citizens would not be dehydrated. We brought 3-month payment facility. I think we have presented what our citizens demanded from us within the bounds of possibility. "
