This Week's Changemaker; Zeynep Simsek Improves Conditions of Migrant Farm Workers
Since 2001, her projects have included providing mobile health services and public health education programs for young people and village headmen (local government representatives in villages and neighborhoods where migrant farm workers live), and projects to address the Malaria epidemic. Through her work, she has enabled health care support and access for over 225.000 migrant farm workers and their families.
In 2009 she and her colleagues established the Migrant Farm Workers Human Rights Association (www.metider.org.tr) to develop and manage programs that promote the rights and well being of this disadvantaged community.
