A Turkish charity launched a project to assist Somali people.

Yardim Eli Aid Organization launched a project called "brothers family" to meet needs of Somali families who have been passing through tough days.

Mehmet Citil, the aid organization's coordinator in Somalia, told AA correspondent that the project was earlier implemented in Palestine, Pakistan, Sudan, Ethiopia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Syria and Lebanon.

Within the scope of the project, volunteer families from Turkey were assisting needy Somali families by granting 100 Turkish lira monthly to them, he said and added this amount met monthly food needs of one Somali family.

Citil said Turkish families showed a great interest in this project.

Somalia is facing with one of the worst droughts in the past 60 years.

The epicenter of the drought lies on the three-way border shared by Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia, a nomadic region where families heavily depend on the health of their livestock. Uganda and Djibouti have also been hit by the disaster. Tens of thousands of people have so far been displaced due to the humanitarian situation in the region.
