Turkey will offer 2,000 buffalos in food aid to the poor in Cameroon through a number of Turkish non-governmental organizations, Turkish ambassador Omar Faruk Dogan said Saturday.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Dogan said the aid will be distributed during the Muslim Eid al-Adha feast, which started on Saturday.
"Turkey is keen on offering food assistance to the needy on the Eid occasion," the Turkish diplomat said.
Dogan said his country strives to offer help to the distressed peoples to alleviate their suffering and accentuate solidarity with them.
He said the 2,000 buffalos would be sent to refugee camps, prisons, disability centers and mosques that house refugees.
The ambassador noted that the Turkish food aid comes at a time when Cameroonian authorities are offering aid to the needy in the northernmost part of the country.Last Mod: 04 Ekim 2014, 16:58
