The absence of another example of such a tradition for children in our country and in the world reveals the importance of our city's ancient culture.

In this context, as last year, we started working to send gifts of chivliness to the children of Konya this year as well. Inshallah, we will send the gifts of chivliness to the first 100 thousand children whose applications we will start to receive online on Tuesday evening. We are doing our best to keep this beautiful tradition alive.” said.
