Together with Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen e. V., Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation sends a truck with donations in kind to Turkey.

The situation of Syrian/Iraqi refugees in Turkey, half of whom are children, is becoming increasingly difficult. Meanwhile, there are about 2 million refugees in Turkey, 280,000of whom are accommodated in refugee camps.  The situation of the "Urban Refugees", those refugees who live in teh City, is particularly difficult. There are around 52,000 in the Ankara area alone.

Due to this disastrous situation, Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen e. V. organised an aid convoy to Turkey. Thanks to the support of Brandsteamtex GmbH, which provided the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation with a donation in kind of 18 europallets with clothing and aviation without borders, a truck could be loaded completely with our relief goods.

On 22.06.2015 the auxiliary convoy, consisting of 7 large articulated lorries, set in motion. One or two further lorries with hygiene sets, kitchen sets, basic foodstuffs and fans will arrive in Gaziantep from Ankara together with the 7 trucks from Germany on 29 June.
