The last terminal of "An Armful of Goodness"

As part of the OSD chain of events, IHH Vice President for Orphan Studies Reşat Başer, Independent Turkçe Chief Editor Nevzat Çiçek, Businessman Hasan Engin Çoban, and IHH Syria Activities Media Officer Selim Tosun traveled to Kenya and met with orphan children residing there. The team then distributed donations of IHH benefactors to the orphans and their families in the capital city of Nairobi. During the 3-day visit, 4 distinct initiatives were carried out for the benefit of the needy.




Food Aid to Orphan Families


On the outset, 82 households in Nairobi's Mathare region received food packages containing essential goods such as oil, dry legumes, and breakfast products.


"Within the scope of this year's Orphan Solidarity Days, we are conducting 202 different initiatives in 31 different countries," Reşat Başer stated during the distribution.


"In addition to the Income-Generating Projects, kitchenware, and food support, we will organize a picnic with our orphan children in Kenya." He continued. Moreover, 350 orphan households were provided with meat from the sacrifice of 3 animals.




New hope for orphan families with Income-Generating Projects


Packages including different kitchen items were delivered to 100 orphan households in Nairobi's Kibera neighborhood.


Nevzat Çiçek, Chief Editor of Independent Turkçe, expressed his feelings and thoughts, saying, "We spend time with our orphans in Kenya and participate in many aid projects here. This kind of aid really means a lot to the lives of people in this region. It gives them hope. We are witnessing the fact that the donations of many benefactors from Turkey have been delivered to the needy here. May Allah accept it."


A grocery store and tailor shop were opened in the same area as part of IHH's Income-Generating Projects in order to assist mothers of orphans. Hasan Engin Çoban, a businessman and IHH volunteer, cut the opening ribbons for the stores.




Picnic event with 150 orphans 


On the last day of the event, a picnic organization was organized with the participation of 150 orphans.


Rice with meat, salad, banana and ice cream were served to the orphans who had fun with various games such as football, volleyball, basketball, trampoline, jumping rope and handkerchief grabbing.


To support


Donors who want to support orphans through IHH can sponsor an orphan for 250 TL per month. In addition, 10 TL can be donated by typing YETİM and sending an SMS to 3072. Those who want to donate higher amounts can support via IHH website or through their bank accounts by writing "YETİM" in the description section.
