“Time to Help” launched in England

Date posted: February 19, 2014


Time to Help, Kimse Yok Mu Foundation affiliate in Europe, has launched its office in England. The foundation’s officials introduced their proposed projects at a recent publicity event.

Orhan Erdogan, KYM representative to African continent, and the Turkish pop singer Reyhan Karaca were also in attendance of the event to share their experiences in past initiatives by Kimse Yok Mu.

Karaca said she has been volunteering in KYM’s aid organizations in multiple countries and deeply moved by the impoverished conditions she has witnessed. Speaking of her experiences in Sudan and Somalia, Karaca said, “I was deeply moved to see so many orphans in these countries. I used to see Africans with shoes out of plastic bottles only in pictures. But to see them in person moves you much more. Once, a mother begged me to take her child with me. My emotions climaxed when she said, “Take my child with you and save him from this misery.” It’s hard to truly appreciate without seeing it for yourself.”

Next, Orhan Erdogan briefed the audience on KYM’s various projects including cataract surgeries, water wells, orphanages, hospitals and soup kitchens in Africa and encouraged them to contribute through Time to Help campaigns.

Erol Tosun, Director of Time to Help in England, introduced the foundations campaign “Sanki Yedim” which translates as “As if I ate”. Tosun said their projects are based on the premise “Human has goodness in his essence.” He further gave a presentation along with a promo video on their past and future projects.

Handcuffed justice

The ruling party has been undermining rule of law since the graft and bribery investigation that became public on December 17, 2013. It sees itself unfettered by laws and the Constitution. It has been sticking to the hoax of “parallel structure” –a veiled reference to members of the Hizmet movement inspired by Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen– in a desperate attempt to cover up the graft investigations.

Hizmet’s political stance: Speak the truth to power, no matter what the cost is

Fethullah Gulen dearly paid the cost of this truth-telling with many false allegations followed by years of trials and tribulations. Similarly he did not mind being politically incorrect when he raised his voice about the ongoing governmental corruption. Without violating the presumption of innocence, he said these allegations should be investigated thoroughly, and whether wrongdoers are affiliated with a political party or the Gulen movement, should be brought to justice.

‘Well, you were saying Hizmet is a religious movement?’

The Hizmet movement is considered a civil society organization, an indispensable element in democratic societies. In democracies, elections truly matter. The will of voters is indisputably important. However, there is also another power, called public opinion. They influence the parties and administrations.
