The “Winter is Coming, Don’t Leave Them Alone” campaign launched by IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation on 1 November 2021 to help the civilian war victims that are facing great difficulties due to the severe snow, rain and cold winter conditions is continuing.
Supplies of basic needs were sent
Thanks to the donations from Turkey and other countries, 719 trucks of aid were sent to Syria between 1 November 2021 and 31 January 2022.
IHH Syrian Operations Media Representative Selim Tosun said that they have been continuing to support families victimized by the war throughout winter.
Explaining that the campaign attracted wide interest, Tosun continued, “Numerous trucks have reached the region since the campaign began on 1 November. We sent the trucks to Syria from the Öncüpınar and Cilvegözü borders. These trucks mainly consisted of basic needs including coal, blankets, sponge mattresses, food supplies, stoves, hygiene products. Owing to these aid supplies, to an extent, families were able to keep warm in winter.”
Our aid campaign is continuing
Tosun added “In the coming days, we will continue to send winter aid supplies and aid trucks to Syria. Our donors can support this caravan of kindness and donate 10 TL by sending an SMS texting ‘WINTER’ to 3072. Similarly, they can also donate to our winter campaign online via our website ihh.org.tr or via our bank account numbers.”
