European University of Lefke (EUL) Head of Basic Education Department and Red Crescent Student Club Advisor Asst. Prof. Dr. Çağda Kıvanç Çağanağa made a statement on the occasion of the Red Crescent Week.
Stating that the Red Crescent Week is celebrated between October 29 and November 4 every year in order to introduce the Red Crescent to children and young people and to inform the public about the activities of the Red Crescent, Çağanağa made the following statements: It started by getting together and founding an association and since its establishment, it has been carrying out activities in a way that proves that it is always on the side of humanity. The most rooted non-governmental organization, which first took the name of the Red Crescent Society and then the “Red Crescent” by the order of the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, has not left those in need alone since then. In line with the same aims and principles, the Turkish Red Crescent of Northern Cyprus has been helping those in need in difficult times without discrimination, with the support of volunteers and charitable citizens since 1974.
Çağanağa: EUL Red Crescent Club contributes to Kızılay’s activities
“The Red Crescent is the symbol of solidarity in times of need and tolerance in the face of differences. It is the symbol of mercy, impartiality and peace,” said Çağnaga, adding that as an international charitable organization, it carries out activities in war and peace without receiving any compensation from the beneficiaries and without expecting anything in return. Çağanağa pointed out that our world, which is going through such difficult times during the Red Crescent Week, should protect the Red Crescent and its principles and try to help those in need with an understanding of volunteerism. Finally, Çağanağa concluded her words by saying, “As European University of Lefke, Kızılay Student Club, our aim is to help people in need, regardless of language, religion or race, to inform university students about Kızılay’s activities and to contribute to Kızılay’s activities.”
