IHH keeps being a silver lining with its permanent endowment projects in addition to its humanitarian relief activities all around the world. In this respect, IHH is building education complexes in suffering countries for children who have no access to shelter and education. Ismael - Elif - Selim Islamic Brotherhood Orphans’ Education Complex, which has come into use in Sierra Leone’s capital city Freetown, is one of them.

“I thank IHH…”

IHH’s volunteer and donor Hasan Şen, who named the project after his departed child, got emotional during the ceremony. “I sent my dear Ismael to paradise, and Allah has given me dozens of sons in Sierra Leone. I lost Ismael when he was three years old, and I applied to IHH to keep his name alive and provide for your education. I thank IHH for letting me feel such emotions.” says Mr. Şen in his speech.
