Fikret Eminović, a beekeeper in Novi Pazar, stated that he will donate the income of all the honey he puts up for sale to the earthquake victims in Turkey.

Eminović said, “I made such a decision when I saw that aid was being collected in Novi Pazar for the earthquake-affected areas in Turkey. I wanted to help the brotherly Turkish people by selling honey.” He said.

Volunteers who organized in the capital Bucharest, Constanta and Cluj packed aid such as clothes, shoes, blankets and heaters which were brought separately by the donor.

Some municipalities in Romania have also launched an aid campaign for Turkey, and the Ministry of Health has launched a blood donation campaign for earthquake victims.
