  • Genç Hayat Foundation has been having regular visits to the site of the accident since the mine disaster happened on the 13th of May 2014 and caused the death of 301 mine workers according to the official numbers. Field experts from the Foundation have had observations and evaluations about conditions of people who lost their spouses, fathers, sons, colleagues or friends and have also talked to mine workers who lost their jobs due to the closures of some mines. According to those detailed evaluations, an action plan has been created that addresses the needs of these people.
