Turkish Bride& Groom Expend Their Wedding Day Feeding 4,000 Refugees


For many, their bridal is “their day, ” but this generous couple decided to make it about others. Fethullah Uzumcuoglu, 24, and Esra Polat, 20, of Turkey, decided to expend the money they had received for the bridal feeding Syrian refugees instead. Working together with Turkish charity Kimse Yok Mu, they took their place behind the counter still garmented in their wedding attire and expend the working day feeding 4000 people.

“We wanted to help our Syrian friends, ” the newlyweds shared in a statement through KYM. “Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee infants is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy and that’s a great feeling.”
