SDG 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
Every morning, Kazim Gürbüz wakes up at dawn to start the day with a run in the open air that precedes a long swimming session in the waters of the sea. He then devotes body and mind to his great passion, yoga, which he accompanies with a strict vegetarian diet based on products he himself has grown. His goal is to keep his agile and sculpted physique in perfect shape.
But what sets Kazim Gürbüz apart from the hundreds of millions of fitness enthusiasts around the world?
The identity card. This unique yoga master was born in the small village of Şahinağa, Turkey, in 1921, making him an impressive 101 years old.
According to the United Nations, there are still 400 million people today without access to health care services. And while a definitive solution to this health inequality can only be solved at the institutional level, a first step can be taken by each person in his or her inner self, just as Kazim Gürbüz has been doing every day, for over 100 years.
