Turkey's Humanitarian Relief Foundation is set to help at least one million people during Ramadan, the charity's head told Anadolu Agency on Thursday.

Bülent Yıldırım said the charity would be helping in 76 cities in Turkey and 93 other countries.

Yıldırım said the Islamic world had entered Ramadan with "tears and blood."

"One of the most important Muslim countries is Syria because it is lacking help," he said.

"The people in Syria -- the children, women, wounded and elderly -- are expecting this assistance. Famine and thirst are big tests. I hope we will help them get through these difficulties," Yıldırım said.

IHH will deliver humanitarian aid to war zones with help from approximately 10,000 volunteers.
