Protecting cultural heritage and supporting cultural activities is a duty for everyone in society because culture is the sum of the roads that have walked together, the obstacles and the gains that the society has been overcome. In short, it is the values that have been filtered out of the common past of society. Culture is the cornerstone that makes us who we are today. It enables us to stand and look forward to the future with hope.
We know that there is our unshakable faith and commitment to the values of these lands behind all our successes. With this awareness, we support cultural projects and activities that contribute to social life in line with our mission and policies. We also serve many projects carried out by non-governmental organizations every year for the same purpose.
