ANKARA, April 5 (KUNA) -- A team affiliated to Kuwait-based International Islamic Charity Organization (IICO) on Friday opened a community center in Turkey's southern Kilis province for Syrian refugees.

Speaking to KUNA, leader of Nasaem Al-Khair team Dr. Sharifa Al-Khamees said the center will provide Syrians, mainly orphans and widows, with medical and social care, training and development programs. She added the center's main purpose is to rehabilitate refugees from being consumers into productive people. Al-Khamees hailed Turkey for taking in the largest number of Syrian refugees among all countries, and thanked the Kuwaiti embassy in Turkey for assisting the Kuwaiti team to accomplish the humanitarian task. She said Nasaem Al-Khair team has been helping the Syrians since 2012 and has implemented many humanitarian programs. (end) rs.mys
