Turkish Consul General receives the kinsmen who went to the earthquake zones

Unal, who hosted Hakan Bozali and Hakan Mehmetali, who were part of the search and rescue team that went from Greece after the earthquakes in Türkiye, and Bilgehan Şerifoğlu, Hüseyin Dangala and Burhan Karadayı, who participated in the relief efforts in the earthquake regions, thanked them.

Stating that the aid campaigns initiated and participated by the compatriots are very valuable, Ünal said that 21 trucks and trucks were sent with the coordination of the Western Thrace Turkish Minority Advisory Board.

Noting that there are trucks that go outside of this coordination, Ünal stated that many of his kinsmen called the Consulate General in order to participate in the relief efforts in the earthquake regions.

Unal said, "Construction equipment operators, scoop operators, and fellow firefighters called us to see how we can help. Many people who want to help us call us. The thing that makes me emotional is that many people call and say, 'There are orphaned children there and we want to adopt them.'"

Stating that when Western Thrace Turks come together and do something in the spirit of unity and solidarity, an effective result is achieved, Ünal said, "The fact that you also carry out active activities strengthens the position of our compatriot in the eyes of the people. It remains simple to thank you. May God be pleased with you."
