In every part of the world, millions of people suffer from the difficult conditions of the winter months due to poverty, war and natural disasters. In addition to the cold, children and adults struggle with illness and diseases. Winter is a great deal more difficult for babies and children who struggle to survive with their tiny bodies. IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, that makes a great effort to supply their needs so they can sleep healthily in a warm environment at night, continues to meet the needs of the victims and aggrieved every winter. In this context, IHH delivered winter aid to 7 different countries in the Balkans.
