Turkey to sponsor all Gaza children who lost their fathers in latest war

The Turkish Red Crescent Society announced on Monday that it would sponsor all the Palestinian orphans who lost their fathers in the latest Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

While in the office of the Palestinian minister of social affairs, the director of the Turkish Red Crescent in Gaza Arda Tarhan said to journalists: "We are here to sign the protocol for a project to distribute Zakat funds for 1905 orphans whose fathers were killed in the recent Israeli war."

Tarhan said that the implementation of this project would be in cooperation with the Palestinian ministry of social affairs, noting that each orphan would receive $102 each month.

Deputy Social Affairs Minister Yousef Ibrahim said that this money would lessen the suffering of the children who lost their fathers.

According to the ministry, the latest Israeli war on Gaza left 2,000 children orphaned.
