The
Turkish Ambassador to Ghana, Ozlem Gulsun Ergun Ulueren, in solidarity with
Muslims fasting in the Islamic month of Ramadan, has presented 1,000 boxes of
food items to the Ministry of Inner Cities and Zongo Development.

The
support forms part of humanitarian initiatives to Africa by the Turkish Co-operation
and Co-ordination Agency (TIKA) – a government department that seeks to provide
developmental assistance to developing countries.

TIKA currently
operates on the continent through 15 co-ordination offices that provide
technical assistance to African countries.

At a
brief presentation ceremony that took place on Thursday, May 16, 2019, Ms
Ulueren reiterated the commitment of Turkey to strengthen its ties with Ghana, saying
“Turkey values its relationship with Ghana and for that matter considered it as
a key partner in the sub-region. And we are determined to spend every effort to
boost our bilateral relations with Ghana”.

She
added that Turkey aims at contributing to the stability of the continent
through humanitarian aid, capacity building and social development programmes.

On
behalf of the minister, Dr Mustapha Hameed, the Director of Finance and
Administration, Abdul Latif Mohammed, expressed his gratitude to the ambassador
for the gesture and also made known the desire of the ministry to collaborate
with the Turkish embassy to embark on mutually beneficial projects that would
further deepen relationship between both countries.

He also gave the assurance of distributing the donated food items to the intended beneficiaries.
