Thanks to the cooperation of the Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) and the Polish Ministry of National Defense as well as the support from the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland on March 11th this year a military plane carrying 8 tons of first aid items collected from donors reached Turkey. The first aid items include medical supplies, blankets, personal hygiene and cleaning products. We have bought additional medications in Turkey.

The help has already reached the most needy people in the provinces of Idlib and Hama (north-western Syria). The mentioned items have been distributed among internal refugees, who have been forced to leave their homes and to seek refuge in schools, caves and ruins. We pass the help packages to 650 families, and the medical supplies and medications to 5 hospitals and 4 medical points in the above mentioned provinces. We are the first international organization, which was able to provide help in these areas. 

We call for continued support, which will enable the continuation of the aid for Syrians. Just donate any amount of money:
