“Make a Wish Project” from EMU Students

A social responsibility project was carried out by Tourism Faculty THRM 223 Social Responsibility Project class students at the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU). The project titled Make a Wish was aimed towards children from Miray Special Education Centre. Under the coordination of EMU Community Involvement Centre board member Assist. Prof. Dr. Nazenin Ruso, a New Year ball was organized at Famagusta Flexiland.

Six weeks before the event, Miray Special Education Centre students listed their top three wishes for the New Year. With help from Zeytin Agaci Education and Mutual Aid Society Chair Rabia OzcAlmert these wishes were granted by EMU students. EMU students made the Miray Special Education Centre students happy by giving them New Year gifts such as dolls, goalkeeper gloves and tracksuits. The event also included all sorts of fun activities such as National Azerbaijan dances, clown shows, face painting, games and cartoon characters.

At the end of the event EMU Faculty of Tourism Dean Prof. Dr. Hasan Kilic noted his satisfaction regarding the faculty supporting social responsibility projects each term.
