A Turkish non-governmental organization's project called "Borderless Festival" began on Sunday for Syrian children living in the area liberated during Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield.
The International Refugee Rights Association (UMHD) is hosting the festival for the second time for Syrian children beyond the borders of Turkey. There are over 350,000 school-age children in the area. As a part of the Borderless Festival, UMHD is organizing street games, movies, shows, workshops and competitions for the war-weary kids.
The 15-day festival will end on Sept. 30, while the last two days of the event will be held in Öncüpınar refugee camp in Turkey's bordering province of Kilis. The UMHD will also provide stationery that will cover a year's supply of the children's needs. "We'll visit children in the schools. We will put a smile on their faces with both the stationery aid and the entertainment we have arranged," Uğur Yıldırım, the head of UMHD, told Anadolu Agency yesterday. Under Turkish artillery and air cover, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) eliminated the terrorist threat along Turkey's border in the northern Syrian regions of Jarablus, al-Rai, al-Bab, and Azaz. The offensive known as Operation Euphrates Shield began in August 2016 and successfully ended in March 2017.
