However, as a requirement of our social responsibility, we believe that the payment we make by the Foundation will at least make an economic contribution to our members' spouses and children who are left behind.
I wish that our other machinist friend, Mahmut Kaya, who died in the accident, was also a member of the foundation and we could contribute to his family in the same way. Since there is no provision in our Foundation Deed such as providing assistance or providing services other than members, we did not have the opportunity to realize this.
