Turkey's TİKA provides Palestinians with solar energy


Turkey's international development agency, TİKA, has provided Palestinian families in six areas in the West Bank city of Bethlehem with solar energy systems.

Initiated on request from Samed, the economic institution of the umbrella Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the project would help 22 families (some 350 people) to generate electricity.

It will allow residents to operate water pumps and tanks at Abu Zaytun area and will provide water for around 500 people.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Bülent Korkmaz, the TİKA coordinator in Palestine, said the project would provide Bedouin families, who are cut off from modern life and technology, with solar energy.

Established in 1992, TİKA is responsible for implementing Turkey's developmental cooperation policies overseas.
