Turkish Embassy delivers food packages to less fortunate families


Some 300 food packages were given to the less fortunate families recently by the Turkish Embassy in Brunei which initiative was funded by the Turkish Cooperatio­n and Coordinati­on Agency (TİKA).

The drive-through donation which was held at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium saw families receiving essential items such as rice, cooking oil and foodstuffs.

Turkish Ambassador to Brunei Professor Dr Hamit Ersoy in a statement said, “(Ramadhan) It is a time which commands us to take care of the needy people, and honour their rights over us. So, we can reflect upon their conditions and Insyallah we can act in the best way possible following the Sunnah.”

TİKA has a long history of providing assistance around the world in collaborat­ive social, cultural and developmen­tal projects.

Currently, the Turkish agency is engaged in a range of developmen­t cooperatio­n activities in 150 countries through 62 programme coordinati­on offices located in 60 countries across five continents.

On hand to deliver the aid packages to the families was Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport Hjh Nor Ashikin Hj Johari along with the ambassador.
