Tuncer Kayalar, Turkish ambassador to Nairobi, Kenya, paid a visit to Dadaab camp to observe aid efforts of the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation on site. The foundation’s aid teams shared food and health aid to needy people at the camp and the foundation’s future projects with the ambassador. 

Following a briefing by IHH aid coordinator Ömer Kesmen at the IHH camp in Dadaab, ambassador Kayalar headed for IHH-AID (the Association of International Doctors) tents at Dagahaley camp to observe aid efforts.
