Mehmet Ayrilmaz Feels His Freedom With Support of Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir

Living at Bağarası Çavdar Street of Söke, Aydın, 50-year-old Mehmet Ayılmaz saw the sun after two years with the assistance of Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir. Mehmet Ayılmaz, who started to live bedridden due to the stoke he had two years ago and has not been taken outside due to his weight as he didn’t have an electric-powered wheelchair, was given an electric-powered wheelchair by Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir.

Ayşe Ayrılmaz, Mehmet Ayrılmaz’s wife, said that she was not able to take her husband outside since it was impossible to carry 130-kilogram Mehmet on a normal wheelchair.  “We applied everywhere for two years; municipalities and various authorities in Aydın and around. No one gave a positive answer. But we are very happy now because Fatih Municipality helped us the moment when we started to lose our hope. Thank God for Mustafa Demir”, said Ayşe Ayrılmaz. Mehmet Ayrılmaz who has not been able to go out from his home for two years, left his come by means of his electric-powered wheelchair for the first time and saw the sun.

Ayşe said that her husband was not able to do something by himself and even lost his ability to speak due to the stroke he had, and she had difficulties in taking him outside due to his weight and thus she couldn’t take him out for two years. But Ayrılmaz is now able to walk around with her husband and visit their neighbors at least.

Mehmet Ayrılmaz, who tries to express himself with signs as he’s not able to speak, feels the happiness of getting rid of four walls around him and walking in front of his house after two years thanks to that electric-powered wheelchair. Ayrılmaz thanked Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir, and his first wish was to go to his mother who lives at the same village and whom he couldn’t visit for two years.
