Got a sec?

Firstly, thanks for reading this article! We hope you found it interesting.

The Turban Times is a completely independent magazine, run by a team of bloggers and journalists who all believe strongly in the importance of the stories that we publish.

We refuse to put up paywalls, as we want our journalism to remain free and open for all to explore. Our work, however, requires financial support.

If all our readers chipped in occasionally, with what they can afford, we would be able to continue telling important stories from the Middle East and North Africa region – and you would ultimately keep us financially and editorially independent.
