Date posted: February 6, 2015

Humanitarian aid group Kimse Yok Mu has become the first Turkish NGO to make it to the top tier of Swiss non-profit think tank Global Geneva’s annual top 500 NGOs list. With a wide range of activities in 113 countries around Africa, the Middle East, East Asia and South America, Kimse Yok Mu is a newcomer to the top 100 list thanks to its independence, transparency, innovative approach and effective and sustainable aid activities.

President of Kimse Yok Mu İsmail Cingöz said he was very proud of making it to Global Geneva’s list and that their organization has now officially been recognized as one of the world’s most important NGOs. “Making it to the top 100 was great motivation for us,” said Cingöz, “but now our work is even harder. We will be resuming our work at full speed to prove we’re worthy of that confidence.”

The list was topped by well-known NGOs from around the world such as British organizations Oxfam, Islamic Relief International and Save the Children, US organizations Acumen, Partners in Health and World Vision, BRAC from Bengladesh, the Danish Refugee Council from Denmark and Doctors Without Borders from France.
