Turkish agency provides Eid gifts to needy children

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) in collaboration with Dhaka Ahsania Mission on Wednesday distributed Eid gifts among 200 slum and street children in Dhaka.

Among the beneficiaries, 109 were girls and 91 boys, says a press release.

The boys were provided with traditional Eid dresses -- long sleeve pants, shirts, shoes, and hats -- while girls were gifted three-piece dresses along with headscarves and shoes.

All children were also donated surgical masks to help them protect against the novel coronavirus, the release adds.

Speaking at the ceremony, Turkish Ambassador in Dhaka Mustafa Osman Turan urged Bangladeshi children to study about the ‘golden’ Islamic history of Turkey.

 

"Turkey and Bangladesh together can become the beacons of hope for the Muslim world. [The Muslim festival of] Eid al-Adha is a good occasion to reflect on this vision," Turan said.

Addressing children as "the future of the country", he added: "We should support you build a better future."

TIKA Bangladesh Coordinator Ismail Gundogdu said: “If children smile in a society, everyone smiles.

Holidays are happy days for all of us. We wanted to share this holiday joy with you. May your holiday be blessed."

Founded in 1992, TIKA currently has offices in 60 countries across the world.

"TIKA opened an office in Bangladesh in 2014 and has carried out hundreds of projects since then," Gundogdu added.
