Many tents were destroyed and others flooded due to the severe snow and rainfall that struck regions including Idlib, Afrin and Azaz. IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation delivered aid items such as tents, blankets, stoves, fuel, food packets, bread, boots, winter clothing and sponge mattresses to families whose tents were damaged.
“We reached out to more than 1.200 families”
In a written statement, IHH Syrian Operation Media Representative Selim Tosun said they had provided aid to families whose tents were damaged in the severe snow and rainfall. “Initially, we set up the tents from our stores for families that had nowhere to stay. Immediately after, we purchased new tents and continue to deliver them to families in need. For many days, our teams delivered aid items including stoves and fuel, food packets, sponge mattresses, winter clothing, blankets, boots and bread to those in need. More than 1.200 families benefited from our recent aid efforts.”
“Our aid efforts continue”
Tosun, who pointed out that this campaign has been launched all over Turkey, said,“Since the snow began to fall, a campaign of kindness was launched generally over Turkey. In IHH, we are continuing our winter campaign with the slogan ‘Winter is Coming, Don’t Leave Them Alone’. The kindness of our donors is a ray of hope for the families here. We will be continuing our aid operations with our teams in the region.”
