Kimse Yok Mu does not slow down in providing aid to the refugees who have settled in the city of Kilis, Turkey because of the civil war in Syria. Kimse Yok Mu distributes meals, including lunch and dinner to 1000 people, and has provided aid to 14,000 refugees living in the camps in the cities of Kilis and Hatay, Turkey.
Kimse Yok Mu donated food, clothing and blankets to 12 thousand people in Hatay, Yayladağı and sent aid to 2000 people in Kilis. As a result of the activities of the aid team in the region, 24 portable toilets, 30 portable bathrooms and 10 garbage containers and a play area were also built in Kilis.
Metin Çetiner, Vice President of Kimse Yok Mu, who visited Syrian refugees in Kilis, said the following in his statement: “People suffer at an extreme level. The needs of people for shelter and goods have increased with decreasing weather temperatures in the region. They need many supplies, especially household tools, kitchen utensils, stationery for children, winter clothes and blankets. People suffer a great deal before the approaching winter conditions and there is an alarming situation because of the high number of children. I invite philanthropists to providing help in the face of this human tragedy.
