Turkish newlyweds skip wedding banquet, feed 4,000 Syrian refugees instead
Fethullah Uzumcuoglu and Esra Polat spend their money on people displaced by war
Two Turkish newlyweds decided to share their wedding banquet with more than 4,000 Syrian refugees.
Fethullah Uzumcuoglu and Esra Polat shared the money they would have spent on a banquet to feed the refugees, a small number of the millions that have fled the conflict in Syria.
The couple made their gift in the Turkish border town of Kilis last week, the Washington Post reported.
The non-profit aid organization Kimse Yok Mu shared photos and videos of their kind act across social media on the weekend.
