Turkish aid agency IHH will help a Tunisian charity sponsor 50 orphans in the northern Tunisian city of Manouba, the Tunisian charity said Sunday.

Nasreddine al-Bahrini, the head of the Ikram al-Yateem Society, said the Turkish agency would help his society sponsor 50 orphans until they complete their university studies.

He added that his society would give the orphans a stipend of $30 month, noting that the youngest orphan sponsored would be three months old while the oldest is 12 months old.

Al-Bahrini added that his society could sponsor even more orphans, but said that this would depend on the number of applications presented to it in this regard.

Earlier this month, IHH offered financial and food aid to more than 100 Tunisian families as well as 60 orphans.

Turkey's IHH, an Istanbul-based relief agency, provides humanitarian services in 120 countries around the world.
