Turkish humanitarian group opens orphanage in Cotabato City

The Turkish humanitarian organization Insani Yardim Vakfi on Sunday launched in Cotabato City an orphanage established with the help of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA).

The BDA is the socio-economic development arm of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

The orphanage project aims to provide in-house psycho-social interventions to orphans in the Bangsamoro communities.

The orphanage in the Tamontaka District, west of Cotabato City, named “Ugur Suleyman Soylemez Orphanage,” was inaugurated by BDA representatives and Turkish government officials.

Turkey, a member-state of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, is helping push the Mindanao peace process forward.
