The Caravan of Mercy volunteers are all now safely back from Syria after distributing aid in the form of blankets and food etc. Because of the fighting close to the refugee camp in Atimeh where Caravan of Mercy are usually based, the volunteers were able to help the poor and needy living in extremely poor conditions on the border in Turkey.
Caravan of Mercy volunteers have been working in Syria at the Atimah (Atmeh) Olive Tree refugee. Their humanitarian efforts have been greatly reduced due to the recent fighting there. It was reported (20th January 2014) that the Babul Hawa border crossing between Turkey and Syria has been attacked. This border crossing has been essential for Caravan of Mercy’s aid program. Just 5 miles away is the refugee camp.
