Explaining their healthcare aid efforts, IHH Kilis Healthcare Supervisor Muhammed Ceyhan said, “With our healthcare projects launched in 2018, we provided treatment to 100 Syrian patients. This included cornea operations, hearing aids, prosthetic procedures and the distribution of electric wheelchairs to the disabled. Today we are providing 22 students with hearing aids. Our children, that have been devastated and deafened by war are now wearing hearing aids. I hope they have a much better life in the future.”
