Kimse Yok Mu medical volunteers in the Philippines


Date posted: November 21, 2013

A Kimse Yok Mu team of 12 medical professionals have left for the typhoon-stricken Philippines. The team comprised of surgeons, midwifes, emergency medical technicians and doctors are tasked to heal the Filipinos suffering, in the aftermath of the devastating typhoon.

The team is to cooperate with the United Nations and Philippines’ Ministry of Health. Before their departure, a KYM volunteer doctor, Aytekin Coskun, said he previously had been abroad many times as a part of the foundation’s aid efforts, in his remarks to AA correspondent. “To serve people necessitates effort and hijra (migration). I consider this assignment my hijra. Our goal is to serve those in need. Not just with our hearts, minds or souls; we would like to be there in person. So we hit the roads. I would like to thank Kimse Yok Mu and Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) for laying the groundwork,” Coskun added.

“It feels so good to reach out to those in trouble and need”

Another volunteer, midwife Bahriye Asirci, said she first had been to Sudan in 2010 on a 40-day assignment. “Both professionally and personally, it feels so good to reach out to those in trouble and need. May God let everyone experience the same,” Asirci said and thanked the organizing institutions for making this possible.
