Children of Syria are treated in cabins where voluntary doctors serve with medicines sent by a Turkish charity fund.

For the children, who encounter with contagious diseases like typhoid and plague, Turkish charity fund 'Hayrat Insani Help Association' sent medical aid to the doctors in the region.

A voluntary doctor Amr Ghannam, who transformed a jerry-built construction to a health center, told AA in an exclusive interview that he tried to solve the medical problems of many people on his own and was grateful for the needed aid.

Saying they used the medicines the association sent before, Ghannam stressed, "The biggest sufferer of the war in Syria are our children. We need the medicines that were brought by the association. In Syria, one box of medicines has a worth of 40 years sake. May God bless Turkey and especially Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan."

Representative of the association's Kahramanmaras city in Turkey's south Murat Agcil stated that the aid was sent to Syria at regular intervals, which started 4 months ago.

"We could not stay silent towards this drama and we started a medical campaign. Within this scope, we sent 1,250 sorts of medicines before and now we're sending the new ones. Via the medicines we supplied with the help of benefactors, one child may be saved from dying each day. Being a salve for these makes us happy," Agcil said.

He stated the medical campaign went on and added that they also started to work on equipment needs.
