Women living in the city of Novi Pazar in the Sanjak region of Serbia, where Muslims are concentrated, have prepared an aid package for women affected by the earthquake that struck the city of Kahramanmaraş on February 6.
Packages containing hygiene products and clothes were prepared by the women’s association “En-Nisa” in Novi Pazar for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.
The association’s spokeswoman, Azra Simsovic, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that it collects in-kind and cash donations for earthquake victims.
Stating that they could see what happened in the quake zones through photographs, Simsovic said, “Our religion teaches us to be patient, grateful and compassionate. For this reason, we hope that the aid campaign we have launched will be a hug, a warm hand and support for women.” He said.
Simsovic indicated that each package is worth 50 euros, noting that they have prepared 110 packages containing many products such as headscarves, underwear, socks, soap, toothpaste, brushes and shampoo for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.
Simsovic stated that messages of support in Turkish and Arabic were included in the packages, and stated that the association had collected 37,000 euros with the support of the residents of Sanjak and the diaspora and deposited this cash assistance into the disaster and emergency management account.
