Summary:

  • The Divine Mercy Action Orphanage in Juba, South Sudan, which cares for roughly 80 children ages 2 to 17, was given medication and a medication refrigerator by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TKA). Yasmin Ahmad Khamis, Director of Divine Mercy Action Orphanage, and Omar Sharif al-Din, Minister of Gender, Child, and Social Welfare of Central Equatoria, both attended the project’s handover ceremony.

  • The orphanage director praised TKA and the people of Turkey in her speech and said that this was not the first time that Turkey had helped the orphanage; in the past, the Turkish Red Crescent had given it food, bedding, and school supplies.

  • Khamis says that the medicines will last at least a year and will only be given to children with a prescription from a doctor.

  • The Minister said that the South Sudanese government should have given the medicines that TKA gave, but “South Sudan’s government couldn’t give them because it didn’t have the money.” “

    Sharif al-Din asked for help for 18 more orphanages in Juba and the surrounding areas because the government couldn’t take care of most of them.

The Divine Mercy Action Orphanage in Juba, South Sudan, which cares for roughly 80 children ages 2 to 17, was given medication and a medication refrigerator by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TKA).

Yasmin Ahmad Khamis, who is in charge of the Divine Mercy Action Orphanage, and Omar Sharif al-Din, who is in charge of women, children, and social welfare in Central Equatoria, were both at the handover ceremony for the project.

The orphanage director praised TKA and the people of Turkey in her speech and said that this was not the first time that Turkey had helped the orphanage; in the past, the Turkish Red Crescent had given it food, bedding, and school supplies. Khamis reported that they were satisfied with the drugs that TKA had delivered. “We have struggled for the past five years to get children treated outside the orphanage,” she said. Malaria is a common ailment that orphanage residents get. The assistance of TKA will significantly enhance their care. Khamis says that the medicines will last at least a year and will only be given to children with a prescription from a doctor.

In his statement, Omar Sharif al-Din, the minister of gender, children, and social welfare for Central Equatoria, mentioned that Turkey was one of the first nations to work in South Sudan when it declared independence. In Gondokoro and Mongalla, Sharif al-Din said there are still remnants of Ottoman heritage. The Minister said that the South Sudanese government should have given the medicines that TKA gave, but “South Sudan’s government couldn’t give them because it didn’t have the money.” “TKA came to our assistance and gave medications to orphans who needed them the most,” he stated. Sharif al-Din asked for help for 18 more orphanages in Juba and the surrounding areas because the government couldn’t take care of most of them. The Minister of Social Welfare said he hoped TKA would keep helping and reminded everyone how important the group was during Ramadan.
