Our team had an enjoyable few days with our orphans from Albania and Kosovo. Together they planted trees, went on picnics and attended different programs. The pledged sacrificial meat also reached the orphans.
The delegation first attended a tree planting program accompanied by district mayors of Tirana in Albania. Later, the delegation visited three orphans to whom our foundation provides sponsorship of healthcare.
IHH delegation had an enjoyable time with close to two thousand orphans, where they together attended a program organized within the framework of Orphan Solidarity Days in Albania’s capital city, Tirana.
Many important names attended the program such as the Albanian state and municipal authorities; Samsun Deputy, Cemal Yılmazdemir; Albania’s Turkey ambassador, Afyon Governor İrfan Balkanlıoğlu; İstanbul Bağcılar, Mayor Lokman Çağrıcı and Culture director, Kenan Gültürk and Turkish officials who serve in Albania.
After the program a picnic was organised where folk dancing, colouring- in activities and football matches were played with our orphans. After the meals were eaten, prayers were made thanking Allah (S.W.T) for blessing us with this opportunity and uniting our hearts. The pledged sacrificial meat also reached the orphans after the program.
A visit to the tomb of Sultan Murat Han
After their visit to Albania they moved on to Kosovo where they first cut the pledged sacrifices.
After resting in the “Orphan Castle” hotel which provides financial support to the orphans through their revenue, they had an early start to the day as they went to a tree planting event. In Prizren centre 150 orphan families who are supported by our scholarship program received pledged sacrificed meat and various presents. Then they made their way under the snowfall towards the capital Pristina, to Kosovos Fatih, were they prayed at Sultan Murad Han’s tomb.
