Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) personnel visiting Turkey this week oversaw the arrival of 337 pallets of critical IMG_4997medical supplies, syringes, sutures and FDA-approved pharmaceuticals to provide humanitarian aid for Syrians displaced by war. The donations sent by IRUSA in conjunction with NGO Project HOPE will be distributed to clinics and hospitals treating Syrian refugees in need inside Turkey and along the Turkish/Syrian border..

Islamic Relief USA is assisting the Turkish government and the organization ANSAGIAD to help care for over 900,000 Syrian refugees inside Turkey and along the border regions.
“The situation inside Syria and neighboring countries is dire,” says Islamic Relief USA CEO Anwar Khan. “Islamic Relief USA is especially concerned about the plight Untitledof Syrian children who need support this winter. Many children are in need of urgent medical care right now. Thanks to the generous support of the American public and the Muslim community, we are providing the help that Syrians desperately need.”
