Because, we believe it is our values that is the most vital asset and that grow and  shape us. It is our tradition and folkway to extend our hands to the suffering ones. We have always acted and will always act with the understanding “human being, our primary responsibility”. Keeping this in mind, since 2013, we have been supporting Family House of KAÇUV where the children with cancer can stay together with their families during their treatment. In an effort to contribute to the 2nd Family House of KAÇUV, the foundation of which has been laid last week, we continue our campaign this year as well. We will donate 1TL per transaction using debit cards irrespective of the amount, on behalf of our clients for the benefit of our children treated for cancer. As Kuveyt Türk, we have since extended a helping hand of 1 million 629 thousand TL to our children treated for cancer by growing the hope with 1 TLs. This year, too, we expect huge participation and attention from our clients and on this very occasion, we would like to extend our gratitude to them who always went along with in the charity race.”
