Turkey Embassy on Thursday donated food and non-food items to Confident Children out of Conflict orphanage in Juba.
The items donated included rice, Cooking Oil, Milk, Clothes, Shoes among others.
Ambassador Tugrul Biltekin said orphans are one of the most vulnerable groups in South Sudan and are in need of support.
He urged the public to practice the act of sharing to help the needy especially orphans.
“This is the most vulnerable part of the community that needs a lot of support and human care, and am happy that my gifts were well received by the kids,” The Ambassador said.
Executive Director of the orphanage Helen Murshali appreciated the Turkish Embassy for helping the orphanage with essential items.
She said the orphanage sometimes suffers from a lack of humanitarian support during these times of crisis.
“The Turkish embassy normally asks us what we need, whatever items we tell them, they bring it to us be it food, clothes or shoes,” Hellen said.
Meanwhile the Director-General in the Ministry of Gender, Child and Social Welfare Tombe Wani Jurkin appealed for more supporters to help orphans in the country.
16 years old Jambo Bullen joined the orphanage center seven months ago said the center has improved his life.
He added that the center educates them up to secondary school level only.
Turkish embassy will continue supporting the orphanage for the next three months.
