APPLICANTS FOR HELP PASSED 1 MILLION

Needs assessment of 681 thousand 94 families was made. Food and hygiene parcels were distributed to 321 thousand 404 families. Shopping support cards were given to 35 thousand 743 families. 12 thousand 92 people also received psychological counseling.
HOW IS IT HELP?
Those who want to support invoices for those who have difficulties in payment can contribute by reaching 153 İBB White Table or by visiting https://askidafatura.ibb.gov.tr/ website. Contribution can be made by selecting the invoice that is left to the “Suspended Invoice” portal and to pay the amount that does not have a subscriber name. Thus, a solidarity is developed in which the giving hand does not see the receiving hand.
Only those who have been approved by the IMM for social assistance can leave an invoice. Those who have not requested social assistance before can start this process by making a request from https://sosinc.ibb.gov.tr.
IMM concludes social assistance reviews very quickly and approves those in need. Invoices to be suspended must belong to those who are approved as in need.
