Hannan Turk plays part of do-gooder
Actress turned do-gooder Hannan Turk has well and truly swapped her glamorous celebrity lifestyle for a more humble existince helping others.
More used to spending her time with fellow celebrities in 5* resorts and beauty salons, since her marriage to Islamic preacher Amro Khaled the Egyptian star has spent her time working for relief and development programmes in the Arab world.
Her 'retirement' from acting has been about as far from rest and relaxation as you can get. Hannan has been working hard as a representative for the Islamic Relief Organization (IRO) and has a number of trips planned with the group in the near future.
But, that's not all. Not content with just helping the IRO, Hannan has also signed up to the Ma'an (Together) institution, helping the group to find ways of developing poverty-stricken areas in Egypt and educating those in need.
With no sign of a let-up in her charitable work - step aside Angelina Jolie, the Middle East has its very own Hannan Turk on the case!
