“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.
