Istanbul's July 15 Martyrs, Fatih Sultan Mehmet and Yavuz Sultan Selim bridges across the Bosporus were illuminated with purple light on Monday night to raise awareness on International Epilepsy Day.
The illumination of the bridges was carried out within the framework of the project "Look for Epilepsy" which the Turkish Chapter of the International League Against Epilepsy implemented for the purpose of building social awareness about this disease.
The association said in a statement that the project aims to eliminate false information and prejudices related to epilepsy, one of the most common neurological disorders, and to help individuals with epilepsy integrate into society.
International Epilepsy Day – which was started by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) – is marked on the second Monday of February each year in more than 120 countries, in an effort to raise awareness about epilepsy.
