Hello everyone! My name is Yusuf Yaşar. I am a Turkish Red Crescent volunteer in Turkey /Şanlıurfa. I want to share an emotional story with you that I experienced. We went to a town of Şanlıurfa for distributing boxes with hygiene materials and food. While we distributed the boxes with hygiene materials and food, one of the elderly woman (she is 93 years old) started to cry when she saw us. When we asked the reason for, we learnt that she had been hungry for three days. She couldn’t get food because she couldn’t go to the city center. When I learned this, I understood the importance of this work we do with volunteering.
