The Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay) continues to help Rohingya Muslims with its Kizilay Village Project, the aid group said in a statement on Tuesday.
The just-opened Kizilay Village offers clean drinking water with 17 wells and comfortable living standards to thousands of people with over 1,200 housing units, the aid group said in a statement.
The Red Crescent offers considerable aid to suffering Rohingya Muslims, including shelter, food, clothing, and personal care items.
Since 2012, and especially since August 2017, the agency has delivered over 40 million Turkish lira (over $7.5 million) worth of humanitarian aid for needy Rohingya, the statement said.
Turkey’s leading aid organization also continues to deliver food and personal care kits to 40,000 people every month, it said.
Separately, on Aug. 1 the aid group inaugurated a community center in southeastern Bangladesh for Rohingya refugees who fled state persecution in neighboring Myanmar.
The Hope Village Community Center “focuses on increasing the resilience and self-reliance of refugees in Cox’s Bazaar,” Bangladesh, said the group.
The Turkish Red Crescent is the largest humanitarian organization in Turkey, with an international network to help other nations in need.
