President Erdoğan explained the purpose of the campaign as follows:

“Our main objective is providing additional support to our low-income citizens who become victims due to the measures taken. We guaranteed that the money collected through the campaign will go to the right places with the help of our neighborhood headmen. We call all Members of Parliament, organizations of all our parties especially AK Party, all our mayors and civil servants to take part in this campaign”.
