Salaam Alaykum Dear Family and Friends,
While we are all closely watching the situation unfold in Turkey, we wanted to assure everyone that the majority of students and teachers are safe and on campus in Samsun, Turkey. We are in contact with the few Rihla participants that are in transit to the program, and are working with them to ensure their safe arrival.
Safety of all Rihla participants is our top priority. We will continue to keep you updated on the status of the program. Please keep the community and participants of the Rihla Program in your duas.
With sincere prayers and peace,
