President of Turkish Red Crescent, Ahmet Lutfi Akar, visited the crescent's tent city on Thursday in Wadajir region of Somalia.

Akar stated that they were going to provide the meal for 26,000 people in the premises.
"There are 2,600 tents, 10 water supply tanks, 50 shower cabins, 80 lavatories, laundries and prayer rooms. We want to fulfill the needs of all people here," said Akar.
