Yıldırım, who explained that IHH will be distributing the meat from the donated sacrifices from Turkey and various countries to the Syrian people said “This year, as a part of the project we launched with the slogan “What you share is yours” we will be performing the sacrifices on Eid al-Adha in the Syrian cities Idlib, Aleppo, Hama and rural areas of Latakia. We will be distributing meat to needy families in these areas from the first day of eid.”
Stating that with the approach of eid, IHH has initially purchased sheep and goats in Syria for the sacrifice, added “Our purchases will continue according to donations made specifically for Syria and the need in the region. Those who wish to donate their obligatory and optional sacrifices to Syria can bring joy to the aggrieved Syrians at the cost of 750TL per qurban share.”

We will witness the joy of families who receive this aid in the region. Our distribution of various kinds of aid will continue during and after eid.”
