Erenler Sofrası Set for Needy People in Albania

As part of Ramadan activities, Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) organized an iftar meal for the needy people living in the Kavajë municipality in Western Albania.

The iftar meal, which was organized in the Momel village of Kavajë in cooperation with the Tirana-based Alternative of the Future Foundation (ALSAR), was attended by needy people as well TİKA’s Tirana Coordinator Emine Gizem Başkan, ALSAR Foundation President Mehdi Gurra and other guests.

The flags of Turkey and Albania drew attention at the iftar table, which was set at the empty lot next to the mosque in the village. TİKA has been setting iftar tables for 100 people every day throughout Ramadan.

Since the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey declared 2021 as the Year of Yunus Emre and Turkish Language, the Year of Haji Bektash Veli and the Year of Ahi Evran, TİKA has planned Ramadan social solidarity projects under the name "Erenler Sofrası", which are being carried out in 87 countries.
