The Turkish Red Crescent aid organization, Kızılay, has distributed basic aid to more than one thousand Syrians who were forced to flee the Barze neighborhood of the capital Damascus.
Some 1,500 people, mostly children, women and the elderly, were welcomed by aid workers in the western Syrian city of Hama, according to a statement released Wednesday by Kızılay.
Packages of humanitarian aid including canned food, milk, water and diapers were handed out.
"While Kızılay continues easing the life for around three million refugees inside Turkey, it is doing its best to keep seven million internally displaced Syrians alive," Kerem Kınık, chairman of Kızılay, said in the statement.
Turkey also continues aid campaigns and reconstruction efforts in many provinces in northern Syria.
One of them, al-Bab, whose population fell to nearly 20,000 under Daesh control, has risen to around 80,000, due to reconstruction efforts after the city was liberated from Daesh.
Since Turkish-led operations began last August to rid Syria's northern border area of terrorists, the Turkish government and many Turkish NGOs, including the Red Crescent, have been aiding refugees, living not only in Turkey, but also in crisis-hit border areas inside Syria.
The Turkish Red Crescent's humanitarian aid has exceeded TL 2 billion (around $560 million) since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, according to the organization.
Turkey, hosting more Syrian refugees than any other country in the world, says it has spent around $25 billion helping and sheltering refugees during that time.
Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011 when the Bashar Assad regime ruthlessly cracked down on pro-democracy protests, which erupted as part of the Arab Spring uprisings.
Since then, more than a quarter of a million people have been killed and more than 10 million have been displaced across the war-battered country, according to the United Nations.
