Another program for our disabled citizens is the cap collection project which is carried out in collaboration with the Spinal Cord Paralytics Association of Turkey (TOFD). Cooperating with the Spinal Cord Paralytics Association of Turkey (TOFD), Shell & Turcas lubricant distributors collect plastic caps from dedicated lubricant service locations across Turkey. The entire income obtained from the recycling of the caps collected under the campaign, is used for purchasing wheelchairs for citizens with disabilities.
Shell & Turcas will support the power wheelchair campaign by storing the plastic caps of the sold lubricants in all its branches across Turkey. As part of its cooperation with the Spinal Cord Paralytics Association of Turkey (TOFD), Shell & Turcas placed cap collection boxes in its dedicated lubricant service locations across Turkey to provide wheelchairs to individuals with paraplegia. While collecting caps from dedicated service locations, Shell & Turcas Lubricants group also receives any caps brought to the stations on behalf of the volunteers and sends them to the association free of charge. Thanks to the plastic caps collected under the campaign, Shell & Turcas enables power and manual wheelchairs to be purchased for orthopedically handicapped citizens who apply to the association.
