ISTANBUL (AA) – The Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay) has provided aid worth 2 billion Turkish liras ($682,000,000) to Syrian refugees since 2012, the institution’s head said on Wednesday.

In an interview with Anadolu Agency, Turkish Red Crescent Chairman Kerem Kinik said that the group has been trying to make the lives of around 3 million Syrian refugees easier.

“The Turkish Red Crescent has been helping 3 million Syrian refugees who live inside Turkey and also has been working to help around 7 million Syrian displaced immigrants outside the country,” he said.

Kinik said that the institution has 200 employees at the four Syrian-Turkish border gates. “They work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide Turkish aid to Syrians.”

Kinik added that the Turkish Red Crescent continues to provide assistance in countries such as Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Chad, Ecuador, and Libya.
