Date posted: February 11, 2014

PRIZREN – Turkey did not stay silent to the tragedy taking place in Europe. A group of volunteers from Kimse Yok Mu Foundation (meaning ‘Is Anybody There?’ in Turkish) including actress Mujgan Koralturk and musician Aslihan Erkisi distributed the humanitarian aids provided by Turkish people to the needy in Prizren.

Turkey extended a helping hand to Kosova, the ninth poorest country of the world, through Kimse Yok Mu Relief Foundation. Responding to cries of the orphans in the country, which gained independence in 2008, Kimse Yok Mu Relief Foundation distributed a variety of supplies ranging from sewing machines to goreceries, stationeries to toys. Aids have been distributed to those who became widows and orphans for the sake of their country’s independence. Among volunteers, there were Mujgan Koralturk, who plays Dilan character in the famous series ‘Tek Turkiye’, and Aslihan Erkisi, a famous vocal artist.

Trying to Heal the Wounds

Kimse Yok Mu Relief Foundation, Project Coordinator for Orphan Relief, Orhan Erdogan pointed out that the community is still trying to heal their wounds of Kosova war. Regarding the aids of the Foundation, Erdogan stated that they have brought in the aids to help them. He stated, “To shape their future, we are providing scholarships to the orphan children.”

Mahmudiye Berisha, 57, whose husband was martyred by Serbs, is hopeful of future while accepting donations. Berisha who has 6 children says, “I don’t have a house. We live by the help of municipality. I’m not complaining even though I’m saddened as I am raising my children without their father. Thank God, all of them are in school. My only hope for them is to have a bright future”.

Eighteen percent of Kosovo’s population live on the poverty line. In the country, where 68% of the population is extremely poor, 300,000 people live by 70 cents per day, 120,000 families survive by the help of charity organizations.
