NAIROBI, Kenya (AA) – Single mothers and the elderly in Kenya’s Nakuru town benefitted from free Turkish food aid on Sunday.

The town is located on the floor of the Great Rift valley 161 kilometers from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) distributed food packages to hundreds in the form of Ramadan aid.

The packages included rice, and Maize flour used to make Kenyan staple food called Ugali, beans and cooking oil among others.

TIKA has been assisting disadvantaged Kenyans during the holy month of Ramadan with food aid as different parts of Kenya are experiencing food shortages due to poor rainfall.

TIKA plans to continue delivering food parcels to poor families across the coastal enclave throughout the fasting month of Ramadan.
