A Sad Loss

Oca 20, 2020

Hayrettin Karaca, a well-known figure in Turkey who was affectionately known as 'Toprak Dede' ('Grandfather Earth'), has passed away. Hayrettin Karaca set up the environmental NGO TEMA Foundation along with Ali Nihat Gökyiğit, a founding partner in Tekfen; the two not only shared a common ideal, but were also old friends.

Karaca's death is a grievous loss for the Turkish nation.
