THEY CAN EVEN ACCOMPANY JOBS THAT REQUIRE QUIET
Nejat Ercümen, a member of the Foça HAYAD Board of Directors, said that they wanted to organize an event that would emphasize both the love of animals and the necessity of reading books, and that animals do not disturb people even in an environment that requires calm. Nejat Ercümen; “We wanted to plan a different and meaningful event due to October 4, World Animal Day. For this, we talked to the District Directorates of National Education, Police and Public Library. Our aim is to explain what animals add to our lives, how they make our lives easier, and how they do not interfere with our lives. We wanted to show how they accompany us even in a job that requires tranquility such as reading, that life is more meaningful and colorful with them, and to encourage the use of libraries and reading. As HAYAD, we are extremely happy to take the lead in such an event.” Said.
Nejat Ercümen invited all animal and book lovers to be together with their children at the event.
