Beginning its Ramadan activities with the slogan "Ramadan, The Blessing of the Life," the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is aiming at providing aid to 3 million needy people and orphan families, both in Turkey and in crisis and poverty geographies around the globe.
IHH will provide orphans with Eid clothing as well as needy families with food parcels, Zakat donations, Zakat al-Fitr donations, and iftar meals within the scope of Ramadan activities.
310 thousand food parcels plan to be delivered
The Ramadan food parcels, whose cost was decided to be $30, are planning to be delivered to 250 thousand people in 81 provinces, especially in earthquake-affected provinces. Furthermore, about 60 thousand people are estimated to receive food parcels outside Turkey. The first part of the food parcels distributed in Turkey were dispatched to 81 provinces with 49 aid trucks.
Hot meals will be served, and Eid clothing will be given out.
Benefactors can set an iftar table just by paying $4 dollar and serve an iftar meal to his/her brothers. IHH will also carry out programs to put a smile on children's faces. Within this scope, it will provide Eid clothing to 100 thousand orphans in Turkey and around the globe. Benefactors can dress a child from head to toe for $27.
