Fatih Municipality continues to provide suhoor catering for citizens during Ramadan. Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan gathered with citizens for the suhoor, which was held in Sultanahmet neighborhood.

Realized last year following the street iftars started by Fatih Municipality in 2006, suhoor programs continue this year. Under scope of this organization, Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan attended the suhoor program held in Sultanahmet Neighborhood. Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan greeted citizens and had conversation with them before suhoor, which was attended by many residents of the neighborhood.   

Speaking during the program, Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan said, “We want life to continue in every location of Fatih with familial living. We will do all of our activities with a municipality approach that preserves the familial life of families living here. This is a touristic area. The touristic businesses and investors here are important for Istanbul. However, we do not consider the spread of all these businesses to residential areas appropriate and we want living spaces to be preserved. We think this way not only with regard to Cankurtaran and Sultanahmet but many other areas as well. Urban planning already specifies touristic areas and residential areas. We have varying sensibilities with regard to them. We made promise for the children and youth of our fellow people living in this area. We’ll increase their sports and social areas here”. 

Mayor Turan continued with the suhoor together with the citizens attending the program.
