The group, which serves people in need all over the world, has not forgotten about the Syrians in Turkey. Reaching 4,000 people daily, the mobile soup kitchen has fed 3.12 million refugees over the course of three years.

The total amount of the aid and meals provided by Kimse Yok Mu to Syrian refugees in Kilis cost around TL 9 million since the war in Syria began three years ago.

Expressing that the foundation supplies hot meals six days a week, the regional coordinator of the Kimse Yok Mu foundation, Fevzi Çakmak said “Since the war began, the mobile soup kitchen has fed 3.12 million refugees, including Syrians, Iraqi Turkmens and Yazidis.”

“We will continue to provide meals as long as it is required,” Çakmak added.

Designated a nongovernmental organization in March 2004, Kimse Yok Mu started its work following a devastating earthquake in Turkey in August 1999 and adopted its name (Is Anyone There?) from the cries of people who remained trapped under the rubble.
