ISTANBUL, TURKIYE May 5, 2023 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed food packages that provided 89,100 meals to Uyghur refugee families living in Turkiye in time for the Ramadan season.
The charity delivered food packages to approximately 270 families of widows, orphans and the elderly. The packages included items such as rice, flour, honey, dates, eggs and cooking oil.
Turkiye is home to an estimated 50,000 Uyghur refugees who fled persecution in their home country of Xinjiang, China. The need for humanitarian aid in Turkiye rose exponentially after the recent earthquakes, leaving even more people displaced and hungry.
Baitulmaal delivered more than 3.6 million meals to those in need around the world this Ramadan. The charity has also been on the ground in Turkiye helping with emergency relief efforts and providing food assistance to Uyghur families in need. The charity also provided back-to-school support for Uyghur refugee children in the region. To learn more about or contribute to these efforts, visit Baitulmaal.org.
