In our country, which has experienced one of the biggest natural disasters in the history of the Republic of Turkiye, Kırşehir Ahi Evran University continues to help earthquake survivors who came to the region and Kırşehir. The in-kind aid campaign launched by our university on the first day of the earthquake continues in coordination with AFAD and other relevant official institutions.
