Green Crescent invites Karaman citizens to "quit smoking"
The Green Crescent invites everyone to quit smoking with the message "Coronavirus loves smokers" on February 9, Quit Smoking Day. While smoking increases the risk of getting coronavirus by destroying the respiratory tract, it also reduces the chance of treatment. Green Crescent emphasizes that quitting smoking gains more importance during the coronavirus period.
Stating that the Green Crescent has been fighting against addictions for more than 100 years, Green Crescent Karaman Branch President İhsan Duru said:
“As Green Crescent, we fight against 5 different types of addiction, and our work on tobacco addiction has an important place in all our activities. We understood better how important the health of our lungs is, especially in this period when the coronavirus has affected our lives for nearly a year. For this reason, it is very important to fight against smoking and for our citizens to quit smoking for a healthy life.
As the Green Crescent, we call on everyone to quit smoking on February 9th, and invite them to take the first step towards a healthy life. We would like to state that we are always ready to support our citizens of Karaman who need support in this regard, through our Green Crescent Consultancy Centers (YEDAM). "
