All the income obtained here will be shared with these associations or foundations participating in our festival. For example Yaren Baby Project of Behçet Uz Children’s Hospital Foundation. With the Yaren Bebek Project, our children with leukemia, inpatients or outpatients will be supported. We want all our citizens to visit children’s hospitals. We want them to be reinforced.
