IHH plans to reach out to 2.5 million people in Ramadan
After 30 years of Ramadan projects in different geographies of the world, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is planning aid activities in 57 countries including Turkey this year, with the slogan “Continue the Spirit of Ramadan.” IHH plans to deliver the donors’ zakat, sadaqah, fitra and donations to almost 2.5 million people in regions suffering from war, occupation and natural disasters.

IHH teams will knock the doors of people in need, refugees and orphan families and deliver Ramadan aid in the regions they visit.

As in the past, IHH will be providing support to orphans and their families this Ramadan; distributing eid clothing to orphans, delivering food packets, preparing iftar meals and providing cash support for orphans in Turkey and abroad. We estimate that almost 2.5 million people will benefit from IHH’s aid distribution in Turkey and abroad.


Food packets sent to 81 cities

This Ramadan, it is estimated that almost 140.000 people will benefit from the fitra and zakat of our donors. In total, almost 300.000 people in Turkey and abroad will benefit from the food packets priced at 400 TL each.  We will send 65 trucks of aid to 81 cities of Turkey, our priority country.


Iftar meals will be served

Donors can contribute to iftar meals by donating 50 TL per person for the iftar meals to be given abroad. Iftar meals will also be distributed in various regions and camps in Syria.

IHH has also planned aid projects to bring a smile on the faces of children. In this regard, eid clothing will be distributed to 100.000 orphans and children in need in 31 countries. Donors can meet the need of eid clothing and clothe a child from head to toe for 200 TL, all over the world.
