Turkish woman feeds 35 Syrian refugees, leaves restaurant without paying
CİHAN photoA heart-warming story in Istanbul turned into a heart-breaking one for a business owner, when a local woman fed 35 Syrian refugee children before fleeing the restaurant without paying.
As the children feasted for free, the woman told the waiters that she had to go to the nearby exchange office to convert the 200 euros she had into Turkish Liras. The owner of the restaurant, Cengiz Aydoğan, waited for hours after the woman left but she never came back.
“The bill, including 10 beef döner kebabs and 25 chicken döner kebabs, was 275 Turkish Liras ($94). The woman said she would return after converting her 200 euros but she didn’t,” Aydoğan told private news agency Cihan.
