İSTANBUL

As Turkey is trying to meet the needs of the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who have taken shelter in Turkey from the war in Syria, charity organizations have scrambled to launch massive aid campaigns to lend a hand to the embattled refugees, with Kimse Yok Mu providing food and aid for 2,500 Syrians in İstanbul every week.

As part of an aid campaign called “I need you,” launched by the Prime Ministry’s Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate (AFAD), Kimse Yok Mu provided food aid for Syrian refugees on Saturday. The head of Kimse Yok Mu’s İstanbul branch, Celal Türkoğlu, said they have been working hard for the past eight months to determine the needs of the Syrian refugees who have fled to Turkey.

“We are providing food aid monthly to those in need. We are reaching 2,500 families regularly in İstanbul and our volunteers are doing much of the aid work. There are almost 100,000 refugees in İstanbul and we are doing as much as we can to reach all of them,” said Türkoğlu.
