IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation continues humanitarian relief operations in five continents and 135 countries without discriminating in terms of race, religion, or denomination. IHH has recently launched a campaign for emergency aid to Somalia, Southern Sudan and Yemen, which are affected by drought and conflict.

As a part of the campaign emergency aid kits were distributed to 8.750 Somalians. IHH teams handed out the kits containing rice, flour, sugar, cooking oil, and milk powder to the needy in the cities of Bay, Nugal and Shabel.

“We are Planning to Deliver Aid to 50.000 Somalians”

IHH Foreign Relations Representative and Deputy Chairman Hasan Aynacı said, “thanks to the donations coming in as a result of our call out to our donors we have so far provided for the food of nine thousand African brothers here. We are planning to continue our campaign and reach out to 50.000 people in Somalia with the support of our donors.”
