IHH Representative for Syria Operations Selim Tosun stated that with the approaching winter, urgent needs of the families living in the camps in Idlib have also increased.

Tosun added, “The living conditions in the tent cities and camps in Syria are appalling. There are millions of people in this country where the war is ongoing that are unable to access even to the minimal provisions for survival. With the aim of meeting the food needs, we distributed 8.000 food supply packets in collaboration with the Kuwait based IICO organization to families living in the camps. Almost 50.000 civilians benefitted from this food supplie distribution.”

Adding that their aid operations will continue to meet the emergency needs of the civilians in Idlib, Tosun said, “With the approaching winter the needs of the people in Idlib where almost 4 million people live are gradually increasing. The families that evacuated from various regions in the country to Idlib and settled in the camps here in particular are suffering great difficulties. We want to complete our preparations before winter comes and meet the needs of the people in emergency situations.”
