Arakanese Muslims, who had to leave their land in 2012 as a result of a Buddhist attack in Myanmar took refuge in neighboring countries, continue to call for help. As the Turkiye Diyanet Foundation, we have carried out aid activities in the amount of 11,920,192 TL within the scope of humanitarian aid, Ramadan activities, Qurban activities, and training activities for the Arakanese for the last 5 years.
WE PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT TO ARAKANESE STUDENTS.
In addition, we have been with the children of Arakanese Muslims who have been exiled from their lands and become refugees with educational and cultural services.
Arakanese students continue their education with the support of our Foundation at The Islamic University of Malaysia, Bangladesh International Chittagong Islamic University and International Imam Khatib High Schools in Istanbul, Konya, and Kayseri in Turkey and Ankara University. A total of 4,134 Arakanese students are provided with educational support in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Turkey and all costs of these students are covered by our foundation.
WE INVEST IN ARAKAN'S FUTURE
It is one of the main objectives of our Foundation to make Arakanese students, each specially selected, active in the field of communication, law, and medicine who can defend the Arakan issue and contribute to the solution of this problem and Share it with the world. In this sense, every Arakanese student whose education we cover is asked to contribute to the Arakan issue when they graduate and not to forget their country.
THERE ARE NO WORDS TO EXPLAIN THE VIOLENCE.
As the head of the UN Human Rights Investigation Commission Arvidsson said, "There are no words to explain the violence in Myanmar." We call on all humanity to be sensitive to the situation of our Arakanese brothers and sisters and to reach out to the oppressed Arakanese Muslims as much as they can and support their needs.
