IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation keeps helping out tens of thousands of refugees who fled Aleppo and arrived at the Turkish border near the southern city of Kilis

Following Assad regime and Russian forces intensified attacks on Aleppo thousands of people rushed to Turkish border. IHH built tent camps across the border to shelter those people.

5,500 tents set up

IHH Emergency Aid Team, which consists of 300 people, set up camps in Bab al-Salam and Haramain to shelter the refugees. So far, IHH teams have set up nearly 5,500 tents and distributed 3 thousand 200 blankets.

Around 60 thousand people are now sheltering in the camps in the regions of Bab al-Salam and Haramain. 

We have recently set up our ninth camp due to insufficient shelter for these refugees. With this camp, which we named ‘Muqawamah', more 25 thousand refugees will be accommodated. 

Hot meals to 50 thousand refugees on a daily basis

IHH team is distributing hot meals to 50 thousand refugees in the area daily while delivering 100 thousand loaves of bread to the refugees.

It is reported that the bombing of civilian areas will escalate in the upcoming days. So another wave of mass exodus is expected.
