Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality is temporarily sheltering 200 homeless people in a sports hall until low winter temperatures are gone. The homeless were collected from streets and were offered hot food and shower opportunity at the hall and they also underwent health screening. Municipality officials noted the people would stay at the sports hall until temperatures get better.  


The IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation gave shoes, coats, sweaters, trousers, underwear and various clothes to the 200 homeless people sheltered at Alibeyköy Tevfik Aydeniz Indoor Sports Hall. The homeless thanked the IHH over aid.
