We sowed the seeds of the 'Kalben Children's Village'. Our village will consist of 4 separate buildings, including 7 children's homes, a cafeteria, a library and an indoor activity area. The Protection Group of Companies, which donated 2 children's houses to our project, was positioned as one of the biggest contractors in the realization of our project. I would like to express my gratitude to our colleagues who contributed to all their efforts in the presence of the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Protection Group of Companies, Mr. V.
