Turkey mobilizes its aid organizations for Syria and Gaza

Friday, 13 December 2013

The Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency of Turkey (AFAD) has said that it will organize the delivery of aid to Syria and Gaza with the aim of helping Syrians and Palestinians face the cruel winter conditions.

AFAD announced on its website that it plans to hold meetings for humanitarian aid agencies in Turkey in the next few days so as to organize the delivery of aid to Syrians, including Syrian refugees in Turkey, and Palestinians in Gaza, given that the Mediterranean area has been hit by a snowstorm.

A deep low-pressure system has formed over the region in the past two days, heightening the suffering of Syrian refugees in the region and Palestinians in Gaza, the latter who are enduring the harsh weather while under a strict seize imposed by Israel.
