A Turkish couple selflessly spent their wedding day feeding 4,000 Syrian refugees at their wedding banquet.

Instead of being the center of attention on their special day, they wanted to help those who were really in need.

The groom and bride, Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat, used the savings from their families for their wedding to feed the nearby refugees.

The idea came from the groom’s father, Ali Üzümcüoğlu, who said he felt it was unnecessary to have such a big meal with family and friends when there were people right near them who needed it more.

The bride, Esra Polat, was also happy to be sharing her wedding with the refugees.

The groom was so touched by the happiness in the children’s eyes. He said he felt it was a great feeling starting their journey to happiness by making others happy.

 

The wedding guests also helped out, and were so moved that they are also planning to do something similar.
