While the world is at the brink of the water problem to hit the planet in the near future, in Africa 53% of the population still have no access to fresh water, women and children have to walk kilometers to reach unclean springs, and 3 out of 10 African children are dying due to diseases caused by polluted water resources. In order to draw attention to this problem, the artist went to Africa in 2014 and 2017, took wild nature photos there, and opened a photograph exhibition with them titled “Sen de Tanık Ol” in November 2017. He has initiated a social responsibility project to bring about water well and smart village projects in Africa with the revenue he gained from the said exhibition.
