Wedding gifts will help build dorm and water wells in Tanzania


Date posted: August 24, 2013

Ubeyd and Nurefşan Yeşil donated the gifts presented at their wedding to the Hizmet in Tanzania. Almost $40,000 value donation will be used in the construction of a college dormitory and water wells.

Ubeyd Yeşil who moved to Tanzania last year to start his business got married to Nurefşan Yeşil in Uşak, Turkey. Mr Yeşil went to university in Tokyo and stayed in New York to learn English. He finished Yamanlar High School, which is the first school established by the Hizmet movement.

Newly married couple donated all the wedding gifts, money and jewelry, to Hizmet initiative representatives from Tanzania right after the wedding at the wedding hall.

Mr. Yeşil who represents in Tanzania four Turkish manufacturing companies also volunteers at Hizmet’s activities. He says, “He wants to contribute to Tanzania’s future.”

Mrs. Yeşil accepted, without thinking even for a second, her husband’s proposal to donate all the wedding gifts. She lived in Pakistan for four years because of her father’s work. She prayed that God would accept their donations and help Hizmet everywhere.

Ömer Yeşil, Ubeyd’s father, was extremely happy because of his son’s generosity and acknowledged that his son wanted to move to Tanzania although he needed his son in Turkey; he could not hold his tears.
