Fighting against poverty in 110 countries, from Africa to Asia, from the Balkans to the Middle East, the volunteers of the Kimse Yok Mu Foundation now visited orphanages in Tanzania.
A committee from Kimse Yok Mu met with Tanzania Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Child Justice and Rehabilitation Services Deputy Superintendent Rabikira O. Muchi in order to be informed about the orphanages within the country. Muchi informed the committee that the orphanages ran on charitable donations. He also noted the fact that they did not know for sure the exact number of orphanages living in the country. Muchi mentioned that because of difficult conditions, they were not able to have separate facilities for boys and girls, and said, “Children who do not have any mother or father, end up staying with us until they reach the age of 18. Thus, it is very important that we improve the conditions of our orphanages.”
We are thankful for the Turkish people who have sent us aid
Kimse Yok Mu volunteers visited 106 children living in an orphanage in the city of Dar es Salam and brought presents with them like bunk beds, blankets, clothing, food, stationery, and toys. In response to this charitable gesture, the orphanage directress prayed, “We are thankful to the Turkish people who have sent their aid all the way here from Turkey. May our Lord bless you with happiness in the Hereafter for all your help, may you be together with the Prophet Muhammad by the fountain of Kawthar, may you be blessed with the honor of seeing Jamalullah.”
In regards to their visit to Tanzania, Ali Akkız, a volunteer for the foundation, commented, “During our visit to Tanzania, we realized that the ophans in the country were living in truly harsh conditions. At every orphanage we visited, they prayed for us, and read to us from the Holy Qur’an. We carried over all those prayers to those volunteers in Turkey who had sent their contributions.”
