Winter aid from Turkey to Yemen

As a part of our “A Warm Kindness” campaign, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation distributed aid of blankets and coats to 1 thousand 150 Yemeni families.

They are the most affected during the winter months. Every year, thousands of people are forced to abandon their homes due to war. Thousands of refugees lose their lives on the journey to flee the conflict, while those who remain behind struggle to survive the freezing conditions of winter. In refugee camps, winter means the threat of freezing conditions, illness and death. Millions of people are in need of winter clothing, boots, blankets and food supplies. One thing can bring warmth to the freezing hands, to the bodies that tremble from the sudden downpour of snow: “A Warm Kindness.”

In addition to our emergency aid operations in Yemen, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, that is continuing its winter operations with the slogan “A Warm Kindness”, is also carrying out winter aid operations in the region. In this context, IHH distributed blankets and coats to 1 thousand 150 families living in the tent city in the Hanik district of the capital Sana’a.
