She risked her life to educate her daughters.

Every day, a father of Erjuram carries his children across the river without a bridge so that his daughters can go to school.

ErzurumA man with four children crosses a river every day without a bridge so that his three daughters can go to school. The father, who ignores death by carrying his daughters on his shoulders, is pushing all the way to school without caring about the cold and scorching water of winter.

Walking on foot and entering rough water
The father of 4, Deniz Yesilbus, who has accepted the sacrifice for 3 daughters living in the village of Salkom in Muratchairi Mahalesi, জেলারat district, is moved by those who see it. Especially in the winter season, as the flow of Tuzla Çay passing in front of the village of Salkom increases, vehicles enter and leave the village. Mallard, on the other hand, rolled up his pants and plunged into rough water to pick up his school-going daughters, Ella (11), Yagmur (9), and Janep (7), on a school bus.
In the spring and winter, despite the adverse weather conditions, the father did not give up. In summer, currents, whose flow rate decreases, give the family a sigh of relief. In rural areas where there is no entry or exit for vehicles in summer, at least the low flow of water makes fathers and daughters happy.

“2 lives lost before”
Father Deniz Yasalbas said the village had no bridges to cross the river year after year, “We have no bridges, no transportation in the village. We have a hard time getting our students to school. We took the water on our backs and went to the main road with the children. Spring and winter we can’t go through here. We have lost 2 lives on this page before, ”he said.

“Drought is not rejected, but we are happy”
Jesilbus said the drought had reduced the flow rate, so they were happy with the drought and said, “There has been a drought in Erzurum this year. Usually, we don’t rejoice in the drought, but we do. Because the only way to get out of the water. When it decreases, we can move comfortably. We want the help of our government. “We want a bridge to be built here,” he said.

“One day, when I was taking my baby, it was almost snowing.”
“Someone took a video of me while I was walking through the water,” said father Deniz Yesilbus, referring to the images reflected in the camera on his mobile phone. That video explains what we went through. We are in the middle. We are now in a time when water is at its lowest. Because there was not much rain this year. In the spring, 3-4 months is very, very hard. In winter, our roads will not be open any more. Many times the water exceeds our height. One day, as we were taking our baby on the street, his legs almost froze, ”he said.

“I want to have a good boy”
Jessebus says her children say, ‘Daddy, how are we going to pay you?’ I want them to be our state, our nation and our good children. I hope their future is bright, they don’t need anyone. This is our effort so that these are beneficial for the country. They ask me how can we repay your father? That’s enough for me. “

“Vehicles cannot come to our village as there is no bridge”
Ella Jesilbus, one of the children, noted that she was frightened and cried when she saw her father’s condition as she walked through the water, and said, “We have a current in front of our village. The water is almost my father’s height. We have trouble crossing the water. We had a video. It was seen that the water almost took my father away. We were very scared when my father was dragged away. We cried a lot. “In summer, we walk because there is no access to any vehicle. We can’t come to our village because there is no bridge.”

“We’re scared of it.”
“We don’t have a bridge,” said 9-year-old Yagmur Yesilbas. We want to build a bridge. We are very scared to go through there. Our father carried him on his back. We cannot go alone. We are calling our President. Let’s build a bridge for us, “he said.

“We have been embracing this passion since the time of our ancestors.”
Bülent Yeşilbaş, a resident of the village, said his father had a heart attack seven years ago and lost 112 emergency medical teams because he could not cross the water and said, “We are suffering from our fathers and grandfathers. In 2009, when my wife was about to give birth, we called the health team. They could not cross the water. My wife has given birth across the water. In 2014, my dad had a heart attack. The medical team came again, they could not cross the water. My father is dead. I want the help of our president. We don’t want to suffer anymore, “he said.
