Words don’t seem adequate when it comes to thanking you, but wrapped up in these words are love and gratitude beyond measure.
We want to thank you all from the very depths of our hearts. All you kind friends who read our story, shared our campaign link, and helped us with your generosity. You have stood with us, felt with us, reached out in person and given generously to help us.
A week ago things were quite different for me and Matine, we reached out for help and the series of unbelievable miracles started to happen one after another. We knew you wouldn’t let us down but the amount of support was unbelievable. With your generous contributions both online and offline, and kind administrative flexibility of VUB, we PAID the tuition fee, and after quite a long time, this relief is no less than a true miracle. Without all the efforts each individual of you put in our cause, this was completely impossible.
We wish we could have mention each and all of you by name and write a personal note, but a lot of you amazing fellows were anonymous. But we want to share the names of a couple of people whom without their personal and kind efforts this campaign might not even start in first place: Lisa Jongmans our amazing classmate and member of student council, Ilaha Alieva and Duha Ceylan our kind classmates, a lot of VUB honorable Professors specially Dr Dieter VANDEBROECK, Dr Jan LOISEN and Dr Eline SEVERS whom their support were a great value and honor for us. A lot of VUB administrative staff who did everything in their power after they became aware of our situation, to help us solve the problem, Vice rector of education, vice rector of internationalization, director of IRMO and Mr Patrick Boeckstijns, fellow classmates of social sciences program, BA1, BA2,BAl3 and last but not least again you each and every individual in and out of VUB who without your help and support in any way, this was an impossible.
