Turkish NGO “Kimse Yok Mu” Association sent 150 truck laden aid to Syrians sheltered in southeastern Turkey.

NGO official Celal Turkoglu told AA correspondent that they handed out the aid to Syrians who took sanctuary in Turkey but not sheltered in camps, as part of the “Bread and Blanket for Syrians” campaign.

He said there were around 7000-8000 people close to Turkey border living in tents and they try to support them by sending transportable toilets, baths and generators.

Turkoglu said the most needed aid materials were food and cleaning/hygiene products.

Kimse Yok Mu is a Turkish charity and its name means “Is anybody there?” in Turkish.
