Zeher Gezer is now the father of 19 children. Without a job, he cannot feed them all and calls on the authorities for help.


The children are born to two different women, and all live under the same roof. If polygamy was banned in Turkey in 1926, the practice persists in some regions of the country, with only one union officially civilized.


Some of the children are out of school for financial reasons.


It’s not easy to choose a name for a newborn when you already have eighteen children. Zeher Gezer, a father living in Diyarbakir (south-eastern Turkey), probably racked his brains. Finally, the youngest will be called Yeter, a word which means “enough” in Turkish.

If the anecdote can make you smile, it hides a catastrophic situation. Unemployed since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Zeher Gezer is worried about the future of his fifteen daughters and four sons. He fears he will no longer be able to support themselves, while five of them do not go to school for financial reasons, report various foreign media.

Need protection

“We live in great poverty,” explains the father. If I had known it would be like this, we wouldn’t have had so many children. ” In the local press, the man appealed for help “to the State, to the Prime Minister and to the President” Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “We need them to protect us. If we don’t get help quickly, we could all starve. ”

The case drew strong reactions on social media, including racist references, with the family being of Kurdish origin.
