IHH, which has been at oppressed Syrian nation’s side since the beginning of the public unrest in the country, continues to take aid to Syrians with international relief organizations.

IHH and officials from the Libyan relief organization have given $50 financial assistance to 606 orphans who were listed by IHH Hatay desk.

The food packages include pasta, rice, bulgur, dried beans, red lentil, olives, tomato paste, cooking oil and sugar.
