The world knew of the orphans after their call for help. Turkey responded to the call and lend a helping hand. Following the evacuations from Aleppo, 41 orphans were settled at the temporary refugee centre that was established by IHH in Idlib. The orphans, whose needs were covered by IHH, were sent to Azez with the guidance of Turkey, IHH and AFAD teams. The orphans who are now staying at the temporary refugee centre will later go to Jarablus.


Gratitude to the Turkish Nation and IHH

Ten-year-old Yasmin, one of the orphans, said that "Life was very difficult while we were there, the planes attacked every day and targeted nearby places, we were very scared, we couldn't go outside and play, we only ate one meal a day."

Yasmin, also thanked the people of Turkey and IHH for helping them and saving them from the bombs.

Most of the orphans who do not have both parents will continue their lives in Jarablus with their accompanying companions. The other six orphans will live with their relatives in Idlib.
