Turkey's IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation extended aid to Cuban Muslims as part of the Ramadan relief campaign that includes 65 countries worldwide. Ninety students and 450 families were distributed food packages.
The IHH included Cuban Muslims in its Ramadan campaign. IHH officials delivered food packages to 400 poor Muslim families in the capital city Havana. Fifty families in Matanzas were given foodstuff that will suffice for a month. In the Isle of Youth, 90 students were given foodstuff and cash donations.
Cuban Muslims, who make the poorest group in the country, were gratified by the food aid sent from Turkey and expressed their thanks to charitable people of Turkey.
Yanya Pedro, President of the Cuban Islamic Union, said "Ramadan is a time when fraternity and solidarity ties come into the limelight. Turkish Muslims, who extended their help from thousands of kilometers away, gave a boost to our ties with the Islamic world. The aid has spiritual as well as material meaning to us. God bless all who contributed to the aid."
There are 2,000 Muslims in Cuba
