During his flight to Turkey, the Pope spoke about the humanitarian aid this country is providing to hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the war in Syria and Iraq

POPE FRANCIS
"It is a service to the world in making known this religious and humanitarian activity. Because Turkey in this moment is a witness and is also the one that is helping many refugees in the areas of conflict.”

More than a million and a half refugees are estimated to be living in Turkey, the majority of whom are from Syria. 200,000 live in camps established by the government. 

The pope also thanked the journalists for their work and told them that their work is "a service to the world.”
