President of the Republic of Turkey announced a large-scale flash mob “Biz Bize Yeteriz Türkiyem” (“We have enough of each other, Turkey”)
This event aims at collecting donations to the Fund for assistance to needy citizens, especially, during the pandemic. Not only by wealthy politicians, celebrities, well-known charitable figures, and businessmen, but also ordinary citizens joined the flash mob to provide financial support for those who are now in a difficult financial situation.
For instance, a local football club of Alanya donated 500000 TL, more than 6 million rubles. The chairman of the Chamber of commerce donated 100000 TL, more than 1.2 million rubles. Of course, the main organizer of the event, Erdogan, donated 7 of his salaries.
As for the total sum, according to recent data, it is about 1 billion 65 million Turkish liras; more than 34 million Turkish liras were donated via SMS by caring locals.
This flash mob helped the unemployed, the poor, and large families receive 1000 Turkish liras at a time. About 5000 Alanya families have already asked for help.
The local, the president, and his wife support each other not only financially. For several days in a row, citizens go out onto the balcony and applaud the medical staff for their struggle with Covid-19.
