Turkey’s doctors provide health services to Syrians
A group of volunteer doctors associated with a Turkish aid group provided health services and humanitarian assistance to civilians in Syrian towns cleared of the terror group.

Istanbul-based Yeryuzu Doktorlari Association (YDD) has helped thousands of people in 2018, according to a report by the agency.

The YDD opened two clinics to provide health services to people in Syria’s Azaz and Afrin towns, which were liberated from terrorists during Turkey’s Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations in northwestern Syria.

The agency conducted medical screening for 18,872 people, the report added.

As part of the humanitarian aid activities, the agency distributed food packages to 1,500 families and personal care items to 512 families.

During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the agency distributed iftar or fast-breaking meal to 1,200 people.

The agency also provided psychosocial assistance to 5,781 Syrians in Istanbul, Gaziantep, and Sanliurfa, the report added.

Turkey’s Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations in northwestern Syria liberated the region of YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists, making return of Syrian civilians to homeland possible.
