19/9/2017

 

The Republic of Turkey sent its first phase of food aid to Cox’s Bazar earlier this month.

 

The country delivered up to 55 tons of food aid to the district commissioner’s office in Cox’s Bazar on September 9.

 

The aid includes 35 tons of rice, six tons of vegetable oil, six tons of lentils, six tons of sugar, and two tons of salt, said Ahmet Refik Cetinkaya, attaché and programme coordinator of the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency’s (TIKA) Dhaka Programme Coordination office.

 

One ambulance was delivered as well as two bags of plastic toys for the children.

 

“The Republic of Turkey is trying its best to share the burden of [the] refugee influx with its friendly and brother country Bangladesh,” he added.
