Women who lost their husbands to the Syrian civil war, children and their relatives have been settled in the container city, where infrastructure works have been completed by IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation. Such facilities as toilet, shower, dishwashing unit, dining hall and masjid are available for use at the container city.

İbrahim İlgi from IHH Kilis Desk announced that the project that was commenced two months ago had been completed. We set up the container city in Azaz to house wives and children of people killed in Syria, İlgi said.

“We materialized the project with Allah’s help. We will be assisting around 100 families with shelter, nourishment and especially with orphan children’s education. We are planning joint activities with Kuwaiti charities, particularly in vocational training.”

We are aiming to implement orphan care projects in other safe areas of Syria as well, İlgi said. “We will continue assisting our Syrian brothers and sisters. We hope to meet all needs of people staying in this container city.”

Vocational training to be offered
