Helping hand from Western Thrace to Somalia23 July 2021Known for their generosity, helpfulness and hospitality, Western Thrace Turks come to the fore with these characteristics at every opportunity. Despite the economic difficulties, Western Thrace Turks, who always keep the sense of helpfulness alive, participate in sacrificial donation campaigns organized on the occasion of Eid al-Adha and strive to reach out to people in need in Western Thrace and in different regions.

One of the sacrificial donations organized by Western Thrace Turks on the occasion of Eid al-Adha is the sacrifice campaign organized by the IHH-UK humanitarian foundation with the cooperation of Çınar Association which is a Western Thrace originated NGO. IHH-UK strives to provide humanitarian aid to people living in difficult conditions in different regions, both through the organization of sacrifice on the days of the Eid al-Adha, and through international aid campaigns at other times of the year.

This year too, IHH-UK and Çınar Association organized a sacrificial donation campaign for many regions. As last year, Ali Tahir Cambaz, the President of IHH-UK, originally from Gökçepınar (Glafki) village of İskeçe (Xanthi) living in London, went to Somalia personally and delivered the procurational sacrifices. This year, it was reported that in the IHH-UK campaign for Somalia donated 1200 sacrifices and significant amount of them were donated from Western Thrace. The Western Thracian beneficents also provided basic food supplies to 350 families for 1 month. It was also reported that this year, shirts were given to children living in difficult conditions in the camp.
