World Bulletin / News Desk

Humanitarian relief continues to flow into Syria as a truck loaded with medicine, worth over one million Turkish Liras, arrived in Hatay, on the Syrian border, on Saturday.

The supplies arrived in the city's Reyhanli district as part of a campaign called "I need you".

A Reyhanli representative of Turkish NGO Doctors Worldwide said the supplies would be handed to war-scarred Syrian refugees next week.

Doctors Worldwide sent a truck-load of medicine, first aid kits and blankets as a part of the campaign organized by several Turkish relief organizations and governmental institutions.

In a statement made by the NGO, many Turkish organizations – including the Turkish Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD), the Turkish Red Crescent, Hak-Is, a Turkish labor confederation, Turkish Religious Foundation, Confederation of Public Servants Trade Unions and Anadolu Agency – participated in the campaign for Syrian victims particularly targeting women, elderly people and the war sufferers outside of the refugee camps.

Doctors Worldwide are planning to send 100,000 bags of medical supplies as part of a campaign called "one bag, one life".
