The concert was organized as part of daily Hürriyet’s “No to Domestic Violence Emergency Line” campaign, with the revenue from the concert donated to the Emergency Line, which serves victims of violence 24/7.
The concert at the Istanbul Congress Center was the first event of her “13 Duet” album. Nilüfer was accompanied at the concert by Gripin, Emre Aydın, Feridun Düzağaç, Kargo, Mor ve Ötesi, Zakkum, Pinhani and Çilekeş. At the end of the concert, all artists joined together to perform.
Speaking before the concert, Nilüfer asked for support for the campaign. “Domestic violence makes us all sorry. You came here tonight and supported this hopeful movement. I thank you all. The ‘No to Domestic Violence’ campaign has been continuing successfully for 13 years. The goal is to get the message heard and to raise awareness.
The Emergency Line has also been helping victims of violence for five years. You will give even more support if you send an SMS to 6643,” she said.
So far, nearly 35,000 calls from Turkey and 14 different countries have been made to the Emergency Line, which has provided psychological and judicial support to some 15,000 violence victims. As part of this, 1,500 victims who were at serious risk have been resettled in safe places.
