Psycho-social support was given to the members of the Solidarity Association for the Physically Disabled by Anadolu Education and Social Aid Foundation with the aim of creating a healthy society.
Anadolu Education and Social Aid Foundation has been providing free treatment and operation services to the members of the Solidarity Association for the Physically Disabled (BEDD) within the scope of their Corporate Social Responsibility Project.
The new project developed by Necmettin Özçelik, Social Responsibility Project Director as per the protocol of the foundation in order to provide psycho-social support to people with special needs and their families has been applied through trainings provided under the leadership of psychiatrist Dr. Zafer Atasoy.
20 members of BEDD and their families participated in the project, which aims to give psychological support to cope with emotional situations such as rejection, pain, depression, guilt, indecision, anger and embarrassment which are revealed by people with physical disabilities.
Kemal Demirel, the General Director of BEDD, Kemal Demirel thanked the Anadolu Education and Social Aid Foundation for their support, stating that the project on "Providing Psycho-Social Support to People with Special Needs and Their Families" would be of great benefit to the participating young people.
Dr. Atasoy summarized his ideas about the project as follows: In order to be aware of the disability, it may be necessary to lose the skills we have or to teach us what it is to be disabled, to be with the disability, to share with it, to participate in the activity of the Foundation, even though we do not encounter disabled people and their families at every stage of medical education. I came face to face with the disabled children, hidden young people and families who were ignored. The fact that they see the aid offered to them, they feel someone beside them, and that they are able to express their emotions and opinions shows a significant support is shared and it continues to grow as it is shared. The enthusiasm that emerges at the end of the two sharing sessions, where the day and time of the next meeting and the subject which is to be prioritized were discussed, reveals how accurate this assessment is.
Anadolu Education and Social Aid Foundation Social Responsibility Projects Director Necmettin Özçelik expressed that their biggest source of motivation is the great happiness of reaching the needs of different sociocultural levels and meeting their expectations.
The training concluded with a presentation ceremony of the certificates / certifications of attendance granted to the participants.
