IHH Puts a Smile on Faces in Afghanistan
IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation brought hope to thousands of needy Afghan families through food aid, firewood, schools, water wells, and vocational training programs in sewing.
Afghanistan 01.03.2017

Afghanistan is among the countries where living conditions are very difficult due to harsh nature and the conflict in the country. Therefore local people have a hard time finding firewood and food during winter. Potable water is also scant in the country where IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation tries to offer a helping hand to those in need with the help of charitable donors from Turkey.

IHH teams who traveled to the region in order to deliver the aid in person facilitated the distribution of food, firewood and the construction of schools, building wells and organization of vocational training programs in sewing, thus brought hope to thousands of people
