While the fight against coronavirus pandemic goes on, Turkish actors and singers also continue providing their support. Ceyda Düvenci, Bülent Şakrak, Beyza Şekerci, Engin Hepileri and many other Friends of UNFPA Turkey featured a video footage in which "You are not alone at home" message has been given to women living under the risk of domestic violence.

Friends of UNFPA Turkey remind the importance of staying at home during the coronavirus lockdown, yet warns about the elevated risk of domestic violence towards some women and children. However, they highlight that home might not be the safest place for every woman and child. According to official figures covered in the footage, 1 in 4 women who lost their lives as a result of domestic violence are murdered at home. It is also emphasized that women under risk can ask for help 7/24 through both mobile applications and hotlines.

Ceyda Düvenci, Bülent Şakrak, Beyza Şekerci, Engin Hepileri, Alican Yücesoy, Didem Balçın, Derya Şensoy, Rojda Demirer and Asuman Dabak shooted videos via their mobile phones at their homes and underlined that no one will be left behind in this struggle.
