Within the framework of the course entitled “Marketing for Social Responsibility” delivered by Communication Faculty academic staff member Umut Ayman, social responsibility projects are being carried out within the operations of Eastern Mediterranean University Community Involvement Center. Members of EMU Communication Faculty once again demonstrated their awareness towards social problems through the organisation of the following events.
The first project was carried out by EMU Communication Faculty, Public Relations and Advertising students Gbolahan Adegboyega Ishola and Chijioke Emmanuel Nwani, who delivered toys and presents to children residing in SOS Children’s Village. The toys and presents were bought by funds raised by selling clothes belonging to African brand Villar Fashion, the main sponsor of the organisation. Students delivered the toys and presents to Tangül Meral from SOS Children’s Village.
Organised by EMU Communication Faculty, Public Relations and Advertising Department students Hakan Yaman, Kıvanç Cömert, Mehmet Güven Gülgül, Nihan Çetin and İfedayo İbrahim, the second project was a charity event taking place at Cafe Inn in Famagusta. Funds raised during the organisation were donated to the Orphanage Foundation and Çağlayan Orphanage.
Lastly, two groups of students from EMU Communication Faculty, Public Relations and Advertising Department organised a social responsibility event for orphans. While Mücahit Pehlivan, Fehmi Cengiz, Gizem Bekçi, Melis Karadağ and Rava Agan organised entertaining activities for the children at SOS Children’s Village, students of the second group Erşen Amcaoğlu, Enver Gilanlıoğlu and Haney Öykü Tatar organised colorful activities for the residents of Çağlayan Orphanage. During their visit, students of EMU danced and sang with the children and offered them cakes and other savouries.
