(HAK-İŞ) announces the arrival of its aid to Gaza


The Turkish Federation of Trade Unions, (HAK-İŞ), announced the arrival of aid provided by the union to the Gaza Strip, which is being subjected to a devastating Israeli war.

Union President Mahmoud Arslan pointed out in a statement on Sunday that the (HAK-İŞ) Union was not content with just condemning what happened, and launched a campaign to deliver aid to the people of Gaza who suffer from hunger and are deprived of medicine and various types of humanitarian aid.

He pointed out that in the first phase, they delivered aid worth 5 million liras (about 156 thousand dollars) to the Turkish Red Crescent on December 25, 2023, in order to deliver it to the needy in the Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank.​​​​​​


He pointed out that the aid packages, which included food supplies and hygiene supplies, arrived at the port of Al-Arish in Egypt and were delivered to the Palestinian Red Crescent through the Rafah crossing.

He expressed their happiness at delivering aid to those in need, especially women and children, noting that they had prepared the second batch of aid.

He explained that 1,500 additional food baskets will be sent to the region to be delivered to Gaza during the month of Ramadan.

Since October 7, Israel has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip, leaving tens of thousands of victims, most of them children and women, massive destruction of infrastructure and a humanitarian catastrophe, which led to Israel being brought before the International Court of Justice on charges of committing “genocide.”
