ZF Executive Director Meets President Erdogan

As world leaders convened in New York City for the 71st United Nations General Assembly, Mr. Halil Demir, Executive Director of Zakat Foundation of America (ZF), once again had the pleasure of meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey. Mr. Demir briefed President Erdoğan on ZF’s international work, including its current campaigns supporting Syrian refugees in Turkey.

Mr. Erdoğan commended organizations such as ZF who have mobilized Muslims in the United States to help make a positive difference in the world.

A few weeks earlier, Mr. Demir also met with the Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey at the ZF office in Chicago, engaging in a dialogue of mutual understanding and shared purpose.
