Yeditepe University Award Night

Ferman Akgül receives Honorary Award from Yeditepe University


Ferman Akgül received an Honorary Award from Yeditepe University for his commitment to social responsibility and his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 


The Award was handed to Ferman by the Make-A-Wish Foundation's General Manager Mrs Zeynep Ürkün.


Ferman Akgül has been an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation since 2010 when he and fellow maNga group members visited a Make-A-Wish child in the Netherlands.


Ferman Akgül: "We visited Esin, who was very sick and had refused treatment after spending a long time in hospital. We talked to her and asked her to stay positive and give the treatment a chance.  She agreed to trying the treatment and saw a significant improvement in her health. It was a life changing experience for me and I have the deepest respect and passion for the work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation."


Ferman gave a short speech reminding the audience of the importance of voluntary work and underlined that the work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is not to grant last wishes for sick children but to be a part of making their day a bit brighter and giving them motivation and hope. After accepting the Award Ferman sang maNga's legendary hit song "Cevapsiz Sorular" together with Make-a-Wish child Baris. 


Ferman Akgül, "I would like to thank Yeditepe University for this great honor and for their commitment to social responsibility. This Award night is a very important event. I would also like to thank the Make-A-Wish Foundation Turkey for their incredible work and positive energy and for letting me be a part of their family."
