“Which one of us would want to live in these tents?”

Explaining that the camp was set up for civilians who fled from the bombardment, Chairman Bülent Yıldırım said “There were people who fled from the bombardment but had no shelter. So we set up the tents on this camp site immediately and settled the families in the tents. Infrastructure works are still continuing on this site that we only set up recently. Within one week we will be opening a school, healthcare center, a clothing shop that will distribute clothing free of charge, a masjid and bathroom/toilets.”

Pointing out that the existing aid operations are inadequate, Yıldırım said “Which one of us would want to live in these tents? Living in a tent is extremely difficult. But there are people that don’t even have these facilities. Today we received another 1.500 tents. We will be setting these up in an attempt of eliminating the need for shelter. We must increase the aid here urgently so we can meet their needs. In the long-term, we plan to turn these tents into homes and settle these families so we can end the hardship of living in tents.” Yıldırım continued:

“I am appealing to all those who have a conscience from Idlib. I am appealing to our people and all the NGOs, don’t forget these people who are living under extremely difficult conditions. Also, all the international powers must intervene and stop these attacks, as these attacks are still continuing. Just a few days ago a school was bombed, children were killed. I am asking everyone who wants to save these children from being killed, from the cold and from being orphaned to give their support.”
