"I was getting holistic support from HIDO since I lost my parents at the age of seven. Because of the support I got from HIDO, I was able to become healthy, safe, and schooled. Thanks to HIDO, I successfully graduated with a BSC Degree in Physics from Metu University. Had it not been for the support of HIDO, I wouldn't have been where I am now".
