Turkish Ngo Sends Over 42,000 Trucks Of Aid To Syria

Turkish Red Crescent provides humanitarian aid to war torn country since since start of civil war.

The Turkish Red Crescent has sent 42,000-trucks of humanitarian aid to Syria since the start of the civil war in 2011, the head of the aid group said.

"The Turkish Red Crescent has sent about 42,000 trucks loaded with humanitarian aid to Syria since the beginning of the conflict by itself or in cooperation with the partners," Kerem Kinik told Anadolu Agency.

"In this period, food, clothes and shelters were mainly dispatched to the region. The daily life started to normalize after the Operation Euphrates Shield and Operation Olive Branch, and the ceasefire in Idlib," Kinik said.

The Turkish Red Crescent also supports international aids to 6.5 million internally displaced people in Syria, he stated.

Kinik said that nearly 25 trucks carry humanitarian aid to Syria per day.

The Turkish aid body also carries out operations in other areas, including promotion of agriculture, construction of permanent residences, health and security services, the head of the aid agency said.

The operations create a "positive atmosphere" in the war-torn country, Kinik said, adding:

"This atmosphere has become a trigger and encouragement for those returning back to Syria from Turkey."

The organization also improves the conditions in the refugee camps, and serves civilians in healthcare.

"The hospitals [established in al-Bab and Cobanbey] are ready to be operational. We are also working to supply the blood need," Kinik said.

The Turkish Red Crescent also works to prevent the civilians from the affects of a possible operation in the east of the Euphrates River, Kinik said.

The aid organization operates in 45 countries including the Caribbean.

In 2017, the Turkish Red Crescent helped over 18 million people, Kinik said, adding that it will have reached almost 30 million people by the end of this year. -
