Following the February 6 Kahramanmaraş earthquakes, which left devastation in 11 provinces, earthquake victims who were lodged in dorms in Nevşehir travelled to the Cappadocia region. The earthquake victim handbook provided the earthquake victims with more information about Cappadocia.
The first stop on the tour taken by earthquake sufferers during Tourism Week activities was Nevşehir Kayaşehir. Earthquake sufferers travelled to Cappadocia and explored the Kaymakl Underground City, Ürgüp Üç Güzeller, Zelve and Paşaba ruins, and the Avanos neighbourhood. Selahattin Yazc, whose home in Nevşehir was severely destroyed when he was trapped in the Malatya earthquake, said, “Fortunately, our health is in good health, we are travelling, we are exploring. May Allah protect us from harm. We are being led and moved around by our state. We cherished Cappadocia. These locations are stunning.
Ramazan Yazc expressed his satisfaction with the vacation.
“Historical locations are very beautiful,” remarked Yazc. We had a tour of the tunnel city. Excellent locations. I urge everyone to attend.”
In his statement, Kahramanmaraş native Süleyman Bozolan stated,
“We came here from Kahramanmaraş following the earthquake. The Mustafapaşa village headman took care of it first. Right now, we’re residing in dorms. Süleyman Bozolan remarked, “These places will not be good for us. I want to get back to my homeland as soon as feasible. Despite the fact that these places are really attractive, we do not wish to remain.”
Gamze Demirci said, “I did not benefit anyone in Osmaniye because I was also an earthquake victim. I am happy that I was able to serve the earthquake victims and show them about the Cappadocia region. I had to bring my kids to Nevşehir because my husband is from there. I felt the cold at that time that I had not seen in Osmaniye. The earthquake, the rain, and the cold all occurred at the same moment.
