Alanya IHH Humanitarian Aid Association launched this festival as part of the Orphan Solidarity Days with the slogan “If an Orphan Smiles the Whole World Smiles.” The festival was held with 1.300 orphaned children living in Azaz.

These orphans had fun on the merry go round, big wheel and inflated play area; they were also given popcorn, candy floss, ice-cream and meals.

“We wanted to remind these orphans that they are children”

IHH Alanya Chairman Adnan Yavuz stated in his speech, “Thousands of children that have been orphaned in the domestic war in Syria have virtually forgotten how to smile. With the support of our donors, as part of the Orphan Solidarity Days we organized a festival in Azaz. We wanted to remind these orphans that they are children. Because in this environment of war and poverty, their tiny bodies have been burdened with great difficulties. We were fortunate to see a smile on their faces, even for a day. Additionally, we should remember that what we have is not important, what is important is whom we share it with. We are making every effort to share whatever we have with our brothers and sisters here to the best of our ability.”

At the end of the program, the children were presented with various gifts.
