Aid materials were collected from various provinces in the Marmara Region and the TIRs arrived in Bolu province. The aid material will be given to around 117, 000 Syrians in the refugee camps. 300 tons of flour, 25 tons of milk, 200 tons of dry food and clothes have been loaded in trucks.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war there years ago, around 300 TIRs with aid materials valued at TL 55 million have been provided for the refugees by Kimse Yok Mu.

The campaign coordinated by the Humanitarian Aid Platform to provide aid to people suffering from a three-year-long civil war in Syria, has launched on January 22. The project encompasses 17 Turkish civil society associations such as the Red Crescent (Kızılay), the charity Kimse Yok Mu (Is Anybody There), the charity Deniz Feneri (Lighthouse), the Humanitarian Aid Foundation (İHH), the international Union of NGOs of the Islamic World (UNIW), and the Turkey Volunteer Association Foundation (TGTV).
