The IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation provides home warmth to parentless children at its Aceh Istanbul Orphanage and weds the youngsters growing up in the orphanage. Orphan girls who grow up in the orphanage get married and make new homes.

Rahmaniah, one of the first girls to be given shelter at the orphanage, has entered a new phase in her life. She has got married, making happy her sponsor family that took care of her for years.  

Rahmaniah and Suleiman got married in a ceremony in Utara, Aceh. The couple shared with us how happy they were after the wedding. The happiness on their faces suffices to erase any past hardship and pain.  

As IHH we express our heartfelt thanks to donors who have helped build such endless homes.
