Istanbul, Aug 14 () - Turkey’s first official Atheism Association has begun supporting the homeless and needy in Istanbul by delivering free soup once a week.
Every Wednesday, the Atheism Association delivers free soup with the motto of “Soup campaign for you” in the streets of Istanbul. The association is also open to volunteer contributions to support its drive via its Twitter account.
The Atheism Association, the first of its kind in any Muslim-majority country, was officially founded in Istanbul’s Asian-side district of Kadıköy in April 2014.
Just three weeks after its foundation, the Association was forced to install a panic button, which is directly connected to the police station near its headquarters in Istanbul, due to death threats.
