IHH Served Iftar Dinners in Eastern Ghouta During Ramadan

Throughout Ramadan IHH served iftar dinners to 4.000 people everyday in Eastern Ghouta in the countryside of Damascus that is under regime forces’ siege.

People are trying to survive despite the ongoing war that took hundreds of thousands civillian lives since 2011. IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has been delivering humanitarian aid, food, healthcare and education to distressed Syrians who can hardly find basic human needs.

IHH increased the momentum of humanitarian aid operations in Syria during Ramadan. It organized community iftars in various parts of Syria including east Ghouta which is besieged by regime forces.

“Permission to Eat Cat and Dog Meat Was Requested in East Ghouta”

IHH Syria Aid Operations coordinator Erhan Yemelek said that IHH is carrying out aid operations everyday in various parts of Syria. “We are opening safe passage to deliver humanitarian aid in besieged areas to show Syrians that we stand by them.”

“Our humanitarian diplomatic efforts to reach out to the civilians under siege bring in results. One of them was in East Ghouta where people were so desperate that they sought out Islamic scholars’ permission to eat cat and dog meat. Throughout Ramadan we have served people in East Ghouta iftar dinners and cherished the blessings of Ramadan with them. We made various charity organizations in East Ghouta where locals can hardly find a piece of bread.”
