According to Sultana, WCH Turkey branch will be focusing on Healthy Ageing advocacy, hence the reason for tying-up with WHAC, which mission is to create a world network and alliance for Healthy Ageing. “WHAC is a platform that leads, connects and defines the healthy aging industry, supports organizations and professionals that develop wellness environments and services for adults over 50”, says Gerontologist Dr. Kemal Aydin, the president and one of the founders of WHAC.
Eco-Palace for Humanity is a vision of Sultana Mariam Amor and is now being conceptualized in the Philippines, Cambodia and Uganda. “The Eco-Palace will be the center for FREE education, health and wellness, livelihood programs, culture and arts, and advance technologies and innovations to solve global issues. In the case of Turkey, we want to design an Eco-Palace which is catered more on Healthy Ageing for all, with the support of the Turkish government, local NGO’s and academe,” says the Sultan. “WCH is supported by social investors from around the world and we are confident that the concept of Eco-Palace Turkey would be achievable which puts Turkey as the leader in World Healthy Ageing.”
