During Ramadan, we were providing food aid to many families. We entered one of the neighborhoods and came to a house that we would call ruin. A grandmother with two grandchildren saw us on the window. When they saw us, the children went out with excitement and joy. The joy in their eyes made us happy too. Then the grandma went out. She cames to us by thanking and praying. We left the food package in front of their house, they wanted to hug us, but we said that it would be better not to hug them in these situations. Their faces felt, they could not control their tears, they cried and thanked us. It was very difficult for us not to cry at that moment. I said that I am doing this job gladly.
