We like to give something back to the communities we work in at Oceanwide Properties, and as part of our social responsibility endeavours, we proudly sponsor a children’s charity local to our Turkey office - Fethiye International Group (F.I.G).
F.I.G launched in November 2003, the first international charity to Fethiye, when a group of foreigners who settled in Turkey wanted to contribute to their adopted local community.
F.I.G was set up under the umbrella of FETAV, a local Turkish charitable foundation, in order to keep within Turkish legal requirements. It has now developed into a permanent charity that raises money for the benefit of local children.
F.I.G runs a charity shop in Fethiye, the proceeds of which go towards purchasing books and pens for schools, providing bursaries for university students and support for medical bills in special cases. F.I.G is solely run on the support of its volunteers, donations, fund raisers and sales from the shop.
We have proudly committed to a monthly donation in support of F.I.G’s work, and have run our own fundraising events and talks to help profile their activities.
We also like to spread the word about what they do and ask our clients where they can to bring along any books, clothes, pens and notebooks to pass on to the charity.
If you would like to find out more about the charity or wish to make a donation, contact us below.
