At the start of April, IHH distributed the monthly payment of almost 15.000 orphans in Turkey. Under the Orphan Sponsorship System, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation continues to support a total of 96.807 orphans in 52 different countries and regions. We ensure their certain basic needs including education, healthcare, shelter and food with monthly donations of 125TL thanks to our donors in Turkey and all over the world. These children that we help particularly come from countries and regions suffering from wars, domestic conflicts and natural disasters such as Arakan, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Yemen.
Alongside IHH’s international Orphan Support System, our foundation also carries out its aid operations for orphans in Turkey. As a part of this operation, our foundation regularly supports a total of 14.665 orphans from 76 cities in Turkey. In addition to financial aid, we distribute Ied clothing and schooling needs such as stationery to these orphaned children who also receive psychosocial support and education on values. Like every month, at the beginning of April, we distributed the monthly payments to the orphaned children in Turkey.
Since the coronavirus began to spread in Turkey, in addition to the sponsorship payments, we also strive to meet the orphans' families' other needs. IHH teams visited and distributed food and hygiene packets to the elderly and those dependent on care in orphaned families.
“We must share more”
IHH Head of Orphan Department Reşat Başer explained, “At the present where the coronavirus has affected the entire world, we must cooperate and share even more to meet the needs of these families who are unable to leave their homes; those who have no income, the elderly and orphaned families.” Adding that in this context IHH is continuing to deliver aid especially to orphaned families, Başer continued, “Our Prophet conveyed many hadith to us that giving in charity, caring for orphans and those in need is a cure for all kinds of afflictions and illnesses. As the charitable people of Turkey, we have no doubt that you will cooperate today as you have in the past. May Allah bless all our charitable donors.”
