Purpose

A bowl of hot soup is vital for those people, even though it does not mean anything to those who have a nest to thrive like us. Soup is also a tool for socializing these people. They are able to keep their human emotions in the face of a society that they despise and exclude.


Overview

We distributed soup in Taksim together with "Çorbada Tuzun Olsun Derneği" which distributes soup to help people who have to live in the street. As a result, 250 people were able to drink soup and feel themselves important. Soup was served with rice and dessert.


Results

It was important for our team to be involved in such a project. At the same time to be with 250 people, and a bit of a smile to make the feelings can not be described.


Recommendations

There are 250 houses in Beyoğlu. Goal; To reach all of the homeless people in Istanbul and start this movement in Turkey to pass on a dream.
