Turkish charity organization Kimse Yok Mu (Is Anybody There) continues to bind up wounds in Palestine with delivery of aid boxes to thousands of people in the country.
Apart from food, health and education assistance in the country, Ki,mse Yok Mu launched new projects to fight against unemployment and poverty. Cooperating with local charity organizations, the KMY delivered aid boxes to 2,000 families in Gaza. More than 2,000 children whose parents died in the latest attacks were provided with clothes, food and stationery. In addition, volunteers from the KMY distributed meat of the sacrificed animals during Eid al-Adha to the families in different parts of the country.
Thanks to the developments projects implemented in Gaza, university students take courses in various fields for free. The students have opportunity to learn Turkish at Turkish cultural center. Moreover, the KMY has been opening water wells in separate parts of the country since locals are weary of water shortage.
I consider that it is very illogical and unsubstantiated to blame a personality and implicitly the followers of his teachings for an action that is a potential source of a lot of human deaths, destruction and chaos. A similar philosophy of respect and love for everything due to their real Source, the Creator, could be one of our vital prescriptions that is essential against all types and sources of ferocity which we unfortunately witness in the world today.

On Hizmet exceptionalism
What is perhaps saddest about this witch-hunt is that Hizmet is a priceless resource for any government. It serves without any burden on public funds and efforts. It is a rich source of reliable manpower devoted to selfless service and ready to raise the banner of Turkey, on peaceful terms, alongside the flags of all other nations around the world. Instead of being propelled by this free energy, and benefitting from its resources, the Turkish government acts in jealousy, and tries to destroy it.
