President of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) Prof. Dr. Mehmet Görmez got together with a group of autistic children on the occasion of the “month of global autistic awareness” being observed in April.
President of Diyanet Görmez voiced his pleasure for hosting the children and talking to them.
Görmez said much more should be done for the autistic children besides earmarking a day or a month to create awareness for autism and added “it is not enough to remember them on a day or a month. It is our duty to be with autistic children and care for them all the time. I specially thank their teachers and their families for the warm care they are giving to these children.
Alihan who sang a hymn on the love for the Prophet told Görmez he wants to go to Medina. President of Diyanet Görmez in return promised to send the children for an Umrah to Mecca and Medina. Hatice Görmez, the spouse of the president of Diyanet, accompanied him on the occasion.
