Near East University students’ contribution to the campaign of “Blue bottle Cap” for the people with disabilities continues

Within the scope of the social responsibility projects of the 2019-2020 Academic Year, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences participated in the “Blue Bottle Cap” campaign initiated by Cyprus Turkish Association for Orthopedically Handicapped People for the provision of wheelchairs and collected blue caps. Paying a courtesy visit to the association, the faculty members of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences delivered the collected blue bottle caps to the authorities.

According to the information released by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations Office of Near East University, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, who participated in the ‘Blue Cap’ project initiated by the Cyprus Turkish Association for Orthopedically Handicapped People in order to draw attention to the rights and essence of the people with disabilities in the society and raise awareness, paid a courtesy visit to Günay Kibrit, the Chairman of the Cyprus Turkish Association for Orthopedically Handicapped People, and delivered the blue caps that collected by students, academic and administrative staff of the faculty.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Behiye T. Çavuşoğlu and Dr. Selin Ü. Koçyiğit, who visited the association and delivered the blue bottle cups on behalf of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Near East University, stated that they were ready for all kinds of cooperation with the Cyprus Turkish Association for Orthopedically Handicapped People and added that they would continue to provide contribution to the “Blue Cap” project.

Support for the “Blue Cap” campaign is of importance in raising awareness…
Welcoming the delegation in his office, the Chairman of the Association for Orthopedically Handicapped People, Günay Kibrit underlined the key role of the charity events and grants in enabling them to sustain their services and provide opportunities for those in needs. “All charity events, which are carried out voluntarily, as well as the grants have a significant role in assisting us to maintain the existence of the association. I would like to take this opportunity and extend my cordial appreciations to the faculty members, administrative staff and students of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Near East University for the importance that they attached on such social responsibility projects.

We added nearly 12-13 wheelchairs to our body with the money obtained from the blue caps collected every year. However, “Blue Cap” campaign is a very important event in terms of providing spiritual contribution to raising awareness rather than providing financial contribution. The interest in the campaign has been increasing year by year and this makes us happy. Each contribution is of importance for us regardless its size. On behalf of my members, I cordially thank everyone who provided contribution” noted he.
