Newlyweds Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Pola of Turkey decided to spend their wedding money feeding Syrian refugees instead. Working together with Turkish charity Kimse Yok Mu, they took their place behind the counter still dressed in their wedding attire and spent the day feeding 4000 people.
“We wanted to help our Syrian brothers,” the newlyweds shared in a statement through KYM. “Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee children is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy and that’s a great feeling.”
The wedding took place in the southern Turkish city of Kilis, located on the Syrian border. According to the United Nations, Turkey has hosted more than a million Syrian refugees since the conflict began there in 2011; in total, four-million refugees have fled the war-torn country seeking shelter elsewhere.
