ELIT New Year Celebration Raises Funds for Women's Shelter Foundation


The Department of English Language and Literature (ELIT) held a New Year bring-and-buy sale on December 29 to raise money for Mor Çatı (the Women's Shelter Foundation), a non-governmental organization that gives psychological and legal support to women suffering from domestic violence. Since 1990, the organization has also conducted campaigns to raise awareness and prevent any kind of violence.

As a part of their New Year celebration, students and teachers brought pastries, books, DVDs and personal goods to sell during the party. Guests expressed their pleasure at participating in the event, which was organized in the hope of making a small difference in the lives of those who are in need.
