British expatriate in Istanbul helps the needy amid COVID-19 outbreak

British expatriate in Istanbul helps the needy amid COVID-19 outbreak

A British expatriate living in Istanbul, Jeffrey Tucker, decided to help the needy in time of the new coronavirus outbreak in Turkey.

Inspired by a similar practice in Italy, Tucker lowers a basket full of food from his apartment’s window. A sign placed atop the basket reads “Those who can give can put it into the basket, those who need can take them.” So far, someone put a loaf of bread into the basket crammed with pasta, eggs and fruits by Tucker.

A former resident of Italy, Tucker has been living in Istanbul’s Balat neighborhood for the past six years.

Tucker, who is in the restoration business, says he heard about the practice in the European country where the coronavirus has claimed thousands of lives. “People cannot leave home because of the virus, and they have a need for food. I hope this sets an example. It will be beautiful if more people do this,” he told Demirören News Agency (DHA) on Thursday.
