Turkey to distribute 100,000 tons of flour to civilians in need
Turkey will send around 110,000 tons of flour and legumes as aid to needy countries, the country’s Official Gazette announced early Wednesday.
AID WILL BE DISTRUBED AMONG CIVILIANS
According to a presidential decree published in the gazette, the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) will supply up to 100,000 tons of flour and 10,000 tons of legumes to the Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay), which will distribute it to civilians in need, especially in Syria.
Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
