İhtiyaç Haritası is an online platform connecting people in need of something with those who can help them around the country. In addition to this, anyone who would like to offer a mean to support community can also enter his/her support. The main point of the initiative is that you can request any type of support from veterinary services to school materials and volunteers for a social project.
A big map of Turkey pops up on the home page with numbers on different cities, indicating
how many need requests have been submitted for that area. Basically, the platform has three different sections:
"İhtiyaç Gir," (Enter a request)
"Gönüllü Ol" (Become a volunteer)
"Destek Ol" (Support others).
