The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) has completed 44 projects in Croatia, an agency official said Saturday.
Haşim Koç, the TİKA coordinator in Zagreb, said the projects, mostly in the education sector, were conducted in the last three years. TİKA launched its first aid activities in the western Balkan nation in 2014, after the region was hit by severe floods, Koç told Anadolu Agency.
The aid organization formally opened its office in Zagreb in 2016. It implemented an agricultural development program for families affected by floods in the eastern town of Gunja. Under the program, 50 families were provided with greenhouses, while 50 others were given cows, Koç said.
He added that partial renovations of a mosque and an Islamic cultural center, which were damaged in the disaster, were also done by TİKA.
