A Famous Syrian Professor unemployed with tens of his projects

78 years old famous chemistry professor Prof. Dr. Tarek Ismail Kakhia became unemployed when he couldn’t find a university to work. Prof. Dr. Kakhia who was called as the sheikh of chemistry by Syrians told Ilke News Agency about the grievances he has suffered since the civil war.

He was elected as the chief Professor of chemistry in Syria

Married and having 5 children and 17 grandchildren, Prof. Kakhia indicated that he had left everything in Syria and sought asylum in Turkey. Stating that he was the dean for more than 20 years in All Baas University chemistry faculty and elected as the chief professor of the chemistry in 2001, Prof. Kakhita said that  he had carried out many projects including ‘Agriculture without water, agriculture without soil and agriculture with sea water’.

Syrian Professor has interesting projects

Indicating that he had developed a project to use the humid weather in Cukurova (a plain in Adana province) to produce agricultural products, Kakhia emphasized that his project of growing products with no soil can lead agricultural improvement in the near future. Saying that there was a kind of plant that can be irrigated with sea water, Prof. kakhita said that from that plant sugar, starch and oil can be derived.

 “I was laid off instead of being availed”

After working as a technical consultant in Cukurova University, Center of Industry Research, I was laid off and retired without granted any social rights or pension that drew me into serious bad straits. Said Prof. Kakhia and added that “I didn’t deserve that.”

“Having tens of books and hundreds of r&d projects”

Having written 85 books about organic acid, alcohol and composters and signed more than one thousand R&D activites, Prof. Dr. Kakhia said he would like to convey his experiences and knowledge to students in Turkish Universities. Underlining that he had a lot of published studies in Lebanon, Egypt and in many Arab countries alongside in Syria, Kakhia said he wanted to share his experiences with universities in Turkey.

People come from Syria must be availed

Indicating that he had left all his properties in Syria and had financial difficulties, Prof. Kakhia said that, “We don’t ask food from Turkish Government but jobs that we can work. There are very qualified people in these 2 million of people that came from Syria. There are many professors, judges, lawyers, doctors, engineers and teachers. Turkey can utilize these people. This can be a gain mutually for Turks and Syrians.” (ILKHA)
