After receiving a large amount of aid to assist her inhabitants following a tragic earthquake, Turkey has benefited from a donation from Kenya.
Kenya gave 240 tonnes of supplies to Turkey via the United Nations Organization for Migration (IOM) in Nairobi.
The contributions were delivered to Adana Incirlik Base in Turkey through Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
353 tents, 17,245 plastic tarpaulin sheets, 1,261 plastic tarpaulin rolls, 26,565 blankets, and 34,705 sleeping mats are only a few of the donated supplies.
A second supply of tents, tunnel tents, and other relief supplies was also sent after the initial flight on February 23.
Subutay Yuksel, the Turkish ambassador to Kenya, and Justin MacDermott, the IOM deputy regional director, made the two new flights official.
Appreciating the donation, the Turkish Embassy in Nairobi stated, “The humanitarian aid materials, donated by the IOM to alleviate the suffering of our citizens that are affected by the recent earthquake disaster, were sent to Türkiye.”

Regarding the donations, Alfred Mutua:
“Kenya joins the international community in condoling with Turkey, which has suffered untold losses due to the earthquake.
“I call upon fellow citizens to help Turkey by donating material support such as foodstuffs, clothing, financial support, and medical aid,” the CS stated back then.
Clothing, food, quick-moving items, and medical supplies were among the things that were to be provided.
The fatality from the earthquake in Turkey reached 44,128 on Sunday, February 26, according to CNBC.
