“We have Many Problems Ahead”

In his speech IHH President Bülent Yıldırım said that they are happy to host the participants in Istanbul and the most direly needed thing in the Islamic world is to form collaborations in each field of expertise. He continued by saying:

“We have many problems ahead. It seems like the crises will get grow and the wars will get bigger. Women and children are in need. Unfortunately poverty and conflicts have increased. We are obliged to alleviate the suffering that is created the by war. We have to use our resources efficiently. Therefore I am happy to be present in this meeting.

Inshallah, as far as our relief efforts are concerned we will be able to remove financial problems and keep working to get better results. We have just returned from the opening ceremony of Children’s Village located in Antioch. When I looked into the eyes of those orphans I have told myself that our efforts were not enough. Hence I hope this meeting brings out more results.”

During his closing remarks of the meeting Yıldırım said, “I was missing strategic topics in speeches in the Islamic World. Here, all participants here summed up their own experience in 3-5 min. speeches. Our meeting brought hope and brings more goodness hopefully,”  and thanked everyone.
