1,200 food packages have been distributed to families in Chana, Southern Thailand within the scope of the “Erenler Sofrası” Ramadan program, which has been carried out by TİKA inspired by the figures who are seen as the heart of Anatolia due to the year 2021 being declared as the Year of Yunus Emre, Ahi Evran and Haji Bektash Veli, the spiritual guides of Anatolia. Due to the pandemic measures, the packages have been distributed with minimum contact, paying attention to social distancing.
