Having stated that they had also set the Erenler Sofrası in Georgia this year in Ramadan, Demirdağ said that a total of 3,525 families were handed out food aid in the regions of Adjara, Shida Kartli, Kvemo Kartli, Guria and Samtskhe-Javakheti, which are populated by the Muslims in the country. Demirdağ recorded that 68 tonnes of aid packages would be distributed to a total of 4,000 needy families in Georgia as part of the program.
