Syrian and Turkish charities have opened a kindergarten for 100 orphaned children in the city of Ras al-Ain in northeastern Syria.
This is as Turkey continues effort to stabilise the country’s northwest and enable people to return to their daily lives amid the civil war.
The facility was constructed by the Habur Brotherhood International Humanitarian Aid Association and the Gayret Association.
The local council chief Mohammed Hamza said he hopes the kindergarten will benefit the children, as he extends his thanks to Syrian and Turkish aid associations and donors for opening the facility.
Turkey carried out Operation Peace Spring against the PKK terrorist group's Syrian branch in northern Syria to prevent a terrorism corridor from being created along its southern border, as well as to bring peace and tranquility to the region.
Turkey also reconstruct hospitals, schools, mosques and roads destroyed by the PKK. Several NGOs too provided food and clothing to the people while roads and buildings were rebuilt.
