While the aid campaign initiated by the Prime Ministry for the Muslim minority in Myanmar is in full swing, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan's wife Emine and daughter Sümeyye Erdoğan are joined by Foreign Affairs Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu in paying a visit to the region. Part of the intention behind Emine Erdoğan and Davutoğlu's trip is of course to find a way to deliver aid, however Myanmar is notoriously known for only accepting aid from the United Nations. The private plane transporting the Turkish committee has landed in Naypidav, the capital of Myanmar. This will be the first visit paid to the Myanmar government since the first embassy was opened recently.
During her stay, Emine Erdoğan will meet with NGO representatives to discuss whether the Turkish Red Crescent could be allowed access to Arakan. Meanwhile, the possibility of aid being delivered from Geneva through the U.N. will also be discussed.
Even though the Turkish committee will be moving on to the Switt region where Arakan camps are located, it appears they may not be allowed to bring aid supplies with them. In addition, they will also not be allowed to land in the airport with a big plane. The Turkish committee is however hoping to break the Ramadan fast with the Arakan Muslims.
CLINTON TO BE BRIEFEDAfter the trip comes to a close, Davutoğlu will be returning to Istanbul to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on August 11th. Davutoğlu will be requesting Clinton, who will also have just returned from a tour of Africa, to draw international attention to the crisis in Arakan.
RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS REMINDS OF CHARITY AND ALMS
Turkey's Directorate of Religious Affairs Vice-Chairman İsmail Palakoğlu recently announced that they have collected 9,308,000 liras thus far in the aid campaign for the Muslim's from Myanmar's Arakan region and reminded that citizens can donate to the Muslims in Arakan for their traditional charity and alms given during the Ramadan holiday.
LAST YEAR EMINE WENT TO SOMALIAThis is not the first time Emine Erdoğan has stood up for humanitarian causes. Emine, who will soon be headed for Myanmar to offer moral support to the oppressed Muslim population, also paid a visit to Somalia last year in an attempt to draw attention to the fact that the people in the region were starving to death. During the trip, both Emine Erdoğan and Erdoğan especially devoted their attention to the children there.
