Having distributed meat donations to some 1,000 families in Punjab, Pakistan, over the past week, Kimse Yok Mu Foundation also remembered to reach out to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa riddled with security problems. 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.

The recipient women expressed their gratitude to Turkish donors for their help.

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.

Faisal Karim Gundi, Pakistan’s former parliament speaker and Waqar Ali Khan, deputy-governor of the city Dera Ismail Khan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, were present during the aid delivery.

“We would like to thank Kimse Yok Mu. Its volunteers reached out a place even many Pakistanis wouldn’t have the courage to come. These people want the aid to continue,” said Khan.

Book Review — Fethullah Gülen: A Life of Hizmet

Gülen comes off in the book as a charismatic figure, who is defined by humility. You can understand why some might find him troubling. He has inspired great loyalty. Yet, like the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis, he has used this charisma and loyalty for the good. A biography like this is important because it brings to life both the person, whose vision led to the creation of the movement and the nature of the movement itself.
