During the Irish Great Femine(Holocaust), Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid declared his intention to send 10,000 sterling to Irish farmers but Queen Victoria requested that the Sultan send only 1,000 sterling, because she had sent only 2,000 sterling.

The English courts tried to block the ships, but the food arrived at Drogheda harbour and was left there by Ottoman sailors
