Egyptian Actress Hanan Turk Raises Money for Palestinians

For the past two weeks, Egyptian actress Hanan Turk has been criss-crossing the United States with Islamic Relief USA to raise money for the people of Palestine. The popular actress visited a number of major cities, including Chicago, Detriot, Boston, Milwaukee, and New Jersey. The response of the American Muslim community has been astounding to Ms. Turk’s appeal for the people of Gaza. Alhumdullilah, donors across the country gave more than $1 million for Palestine just in the past two weeks.

In New Jersey on May 1, 2010, Ms. Turk's emotional speech brought people to tears, as she made them connect to those in need in Palestine. Called “A Night for the Love of Palestine," the fundraising dinner truly became an outpouring of love for Palestinians. Hanan Turk is an international friend of Islamic Relief USA and has visited the relief organization's work site in Palestine.
