“Today is my 24th birthday. I donated more than 3000 books in Sulaymaniyah with the aim of changing the concept of celebrating birthdays only by making a cake. Since reading is not just a hobby but I also work in this field, I wanted to contribute to the promotion and dissemination of knowledge in my community.”
