"Silent kindness is the highest quality and highest authority of kindness"

Stating that the power of social solidarity has always been one of the most important values of humanity, Tarhan noted that one of the most concrete examples of these values is the aid activities carried out by the Haydi Tut Elimi Association in cooperation with Üsküdar University for children and families in Hatay.
