A delegation from Cameroon, including Prime Minister Philemong Yang’s wife, were in the Turkish province Bursa, in order to share experiences of Kimse Yok Mu (KYM) for their future projects. The delegation had meetings with KYM officials, as a part of a newly founded charitable foundation in Cameroon. They seek benefiting from KYM’s experiences and using them in their charity work. They were pleased with the warm reception and KYM Bursa director Sadullah Hizan’s presentation on the foundation’s work.
PM’s wife Linda Yang said they intend to follow KYM’s footsteps. “We see that you’re perfectly practicing what you just told us about. Your volunteers are amazing. They are working expecting nothing in return,” Yang said. She additionally thanked Bursa people for donating for the 16 water wells that were made available in Cameroon during the last Eid al-Adha. The delegation invited the KYM officials to Cameroon and demanded orphanages and fountains for their country.
Their next stop will be Istanbul where they will make several visits and attend particular events before their departure.

Fethullah Gülen: “Disbelief may prevail, but tyranny will not” (Interview in Asharq Al-Awsat-II)
As [Sunni scholar] Bediüzzaman Said Nursi aptly noted, we should combat the arch-enemies of the Umma (the Islamic community)—namely ignorance, poverty and disunity—with reasonable middle- and long-term projects for promoting education, science, art, trade, democracy, human rights, women’s empowerment, tolerance and dialogue. Any quest for democracy may fail if it does not stand on a firm foundation. The Hizmet Movement has long been trying to do this. with schools, universities, business associations, charitable foundations, dialogue institutions and media outlets.

Questions we dare not ask: Gülen and the coup
Gareth Jenkins once criticized Turkey’s infamous Ergenekon indictments on the grounds that they were “products of ‘projective’ rather than deductive reasoning, working backwards from the premise that the organization exists to weave unrelated individuals, statements and acts into a single massive conspiracy.” Other than being a far more extreme example of “projective” rather than “deductive” reasoning, how is the Turkish government and its media’s attempt at connecting Turkey’s failed coup with Fethullah Gülen and the Hizmet movement he inspires any different?
Turkish Physicians heal Somali sufferers
The civil war-stricken Somalia receives yet another helping hand extending from Turkey’s Kutahya province. A volunteer group of medical specialists recently went to the troubled African country to provide medical assistance particularly to pediatric patients. Kutahya Chamber of Pharmacists Chair, Mehmet Hakan Akcan, reported that, with a team of seven medical specialists and several professionals, they had been to Somalian capital Mogadishu in order to provide medical assistance to the locals in need.
Turkey’s once-worldly aims falter, even close allies concerned
Power appears to have gone to the prime minister’s head. Angling to become president in order to extend his rule, Erdogan is foolishly profiling and purging former friends in the Hizmet movement, recently firing hundreds of government employees who are allegedly (no one knows for sure as there’s no evidence) sympathetic to the movement’s founder, Fethullah Gulen
Kimse Yok Mu continues to care for needy Pakistanis
The foundation gave away sewing machines to 125 women, mainly widowed. The volunteers currently provide fabric backup and thus enable the families to make their living. The foundation will also offer 3-month-long sewing training on demand. Additionally, a total of 50 wheelchairs were delivered to those in need in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The donations were well-received by the locals, putting a smile on the faces.
