IHH has prepared iftar meals, delivered provision and food packets, distributed the zakat, sadaqah, fitra and donations of donors to those in need in the regions of war, occupation and natural disasters for more than a quarter of a century. This year, we aim to reach a total of almost 2 million people in need and bring a smile to the faces of orphans again.
IHH teams that will be carrying out aid projects with the slogan “Ramadan Brings Hope” will convey the blessings of Ramadan and knock on the doors of people in need, refugees and orphan families with its 23-year experience.
Like every year, this year IHH will be delivering aid support to orphans and their families, distributing eid clothing to orphaned children, distributing food packets, iftar meals, and cash aid to orphans in Turkey and all over the world. Almost 2 million people will benefit from IHH’s aids.
Priority will be given to Turkey
This Ramadan, almost 140.000 people will benefit from the fitra and zakat of our donors. Donors will be able to send their donations, classified as a form of worship to the aggrieved and oppressed with the understanding that “A small amount of sadaqah removes calamities.” The price of food packets this year is 175 TL. A total of 201.547 food packets will be distributed to those in need both in Turkey and abroad. Just like last year, the food packets distribution in Turkey as our priority country has been sent with 84 trucks to 81 cities. During the distribution of food packets distribution, priority is also given to people who lost their jobs due to the pandemic and orphaned families.
Iftar meals will be prepared
Abroad iftar meal donation costs 20TL per meal. Iftar meals will be distributed to 883.435 people. As part of our health measures, instead of having iftar gatherings, we will be delivering iftar meals to the homes of these people. We will also be preparing iftar meals for people living in various regions and in refugee camps in Syria.
