Today, technological and scientific advancements continue to push forward at a dizzying rate, while the advancements towards humanity and its happiness are unfortunately not at the same rate. Such advancements are not equally, impartially and permanently enjoyed by everyone in every field, and such disparity in the advancements and distribution results in inefficacy in resolving social problems. We hope and wish that this will be overcome as much as possible in the near future, and we will achieve the goal of a social and economic society in which no single person is dependent on others to live. Yet, until this goal is achieved, foundations will maintain their importance as they served a great deal in this respect throughout history. Moreover, the importance and benefit of these organisations have been proven in natural disasters that took many countries and people by storm. Founded in 1985, Aziz Mahmut Hüdayi Foundation has since served for the benefit of the society in line with its goals, and has always been on the side of our people in natural disasters, especially earthquakes, which caused us great pain. The Foundation, first and foremost, believes in the benefit of always working in coordination with local government officials, and international respectable organizations. We believe that serving the society and humanity in resolving social problems is important in serving and contributing to our country, and international societies.
