Turkish Red Crescent to grant $4.2 mln to Kyrgyzstan

 

Turkish Red Crescent aid society will provide 4.2 million USD of assistance to Kyrgyzstan for the construction of new buildings after many buildings were badly damaged in the recent Kyrgyz-Uzbek clashes in the south of Kyrgyzstan.

Speaking to the AA during a three-day visit to Kyrgyzstan, Director General of the Turkish Red Crescent Omer Tasli said that the aid society would provide financial assistance to Kyrgyzstan so that new buildings could be constructed.

We have come to Kyrgyzstan to help the country and offer the charity of the Turkish people, Tasli underlined.

In clashes in south of Kyrgyzstan last month, 351 people were killed and more than 2,000 were injured. During the clashes, around 2,500 homes, businesses and public institutions were destroyed.

Turks are doing a great job helping the victims of the recent ethnic clash in Osh, Kyrgyzstan. However, it's painful to watch one-sided stories on TRT Turk, a political news channel, which often side with Kyrgyzstan.
