Turkish Red Crescent expedites work on “Supporting Urban Refugees” project, having helped Syrians in refugee camps and cross-border regions for the last 5 years.
Turkish Red Crescent also branches support countrywide activities of Turkish Red Crescent Migration and Refugee Services Department. As part of it, a relief distribution in Konya was carried out. One thousand families under temporary protection have been given kitchen sets, hygiene sets and blankets.
Within the scope of the project, while distribution continues in cities with bigger numbers of Syrian refugees; such as Bursa, İzmir and Mersin, needs assessment will begin in Adana and İstanbul. The project is funded by International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and aims to reach 250,000 Syrians.
