In social networks, they admire the act of the 74-year-old resident of Turkey, Mehmet Çakirkhan, who gave all his savings to help those affected by the terrible earthquake.
To date, more than 35,000 people have been confirmed dead in Turkey alone. Thousands of people continue to be missing.
Grandfather Mehmet, like many of his compatriots, without hesitation, decided to give his savings to the victims of the earthquake. He admitted that he had been saving up for a trip to Umrah for a long time. Nevertheless, he believes that helping the victims is now much more important and therefore, with a light heart, refuses the small pilgrimage to Mecca.
Commentators expressed admiration for the act of an elderly man. A user under the nickname Andrew admitted that although he is not a Muslim, his grandfather's act touched him to the core. According to the man, a free trip to the Hajj would be a worthy reward for the shown nobility, kindness and compassion.
