Hundred and fifty aid humanitarian workers visited the regions in order to monitor and supervise the relief projects on spot and the duration of these visits amount to three hundred and five days in total.


“We will Focus on Education and Culture”

IHH Middle East Coordinator Emre Kaya stated that they carried out the biggest number of humanitarian operations in food in 2016 and that they are planning to focus more on education and culture in 2017. Kaya also noted that they failed to deliver much relief aid to North Africa due to various reasons and that they are planning to reverse that this year by leveling up the aid to the required level.
