The Turkish Ministry of Family and Social Services said that its teams are striving to erase the effects of the war on the 1,380 Ukrainian orphans it shelters in its centers.


The ministry added in a statement on Tuesday that the first convoy of orphaned children arrived in Turkey from Ukraine on March 25.

The statement indicated that since that day, Turkey received 8 other convoys of orphaned children from Ukraine, and they were transferred to special centers in the states of Antalya, Mugla and Sakarya.

He stressed that the Ministry of Family and Social Services supervises Ukrainian orphans and all services provided to them.

He pointed out that in addition to obtaining their basic needs, Ukrainian orphans participate in educational, cultural and social activities that will mitigate the effects of the war on them.


On February 24, Russia launched an attack on Ukraine, followed by international rejection and severe economic and financial sanctions against Moscow, which require Kyiv to abandon plans to join military entities to end its operation and adhere to complete neutrality, which the latter considers an “interference in its sovereignty.”
