Miryam Anjel taking the stand following the speeches of Sibel Erenel, YÖRET Foundation Chairman of the Board, and Nüket Atalay, the Honorary President of YÖRET Foundation, said, "Seeing that anxiety, anger, and violence have increased among family members living together 24/7 during the pandemic, that children have greatly been affected by this, and the schools' becoming online has become a disadvantage for the children's protection issue, we moved our projects and studies to the online platform," and indicated that they presented the videos they had prepared to the public. Anjel also stated, "We sincerely hope that these videos that can be reached via YÖRET Foundation's YouTube Channel shall be used in workshops by all specialists and educators."
