Kimse Yok Mu water well for Cameroon

Board members of Kimse Yok Mu Foundation’s Sanliurfa chapter (an Eastern Turkish province) recently established a water well in Cameroon. The water well has been now serving some 700 locals. The board members established the water well in Kodogo city by raising 4 thousand dollars. The chairman Mehmet Akan Isikyildiz said, “We usually encourage people to donate. But we should do it ourselves first so that we can expect people to do the same. Every member contributed to the water well construction within their budgets and thus made it possible for the locals to drink clean water. I would like to thank them all.”

“Sanliurfa people know how vital drinking water is in hot weathers. So we believe nothing could be more important than building a water well for these people,” said the members. They asked the locals prayers in return. The members called their fellow people in Sanliurfa in particular the eastern Turkey to join them. “ You too come and build a water well in the drought-stricken Africa. Offer a drop of humanity to those thirsty lips calling out “Anybody out there?”
