Kuwait and Turkey have signed three agreements worth $15 million to contribute to the response plan of Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

The agreements were signed by Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED)’s Director-General Abdul Wahab Al Bader and the mayors of Gaziantep, Kilis and Sanliurfa, in the presence of Kuwait’s Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah and Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Al Bader told Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) that the agreements would contribute to financing projects aimed at alleviating the economic and social hardships of refugees living in host cities across Turkey.

They also aim to support Turkey’s efforts seeking to respond to refugees’ crisis, and enhance social cohesion in the three mentioned cities, he added.

The project in Gaziantep aims to provide social services and professional training courses for refugees, and build a rehabilitation centre for the disabled. It is expected to be completed by 2019.

In Kilis, the project will focus on the rehabilitation and construction of social centres for refugees, and on providing them with furniture and equipment. The project also includes the preparation of a landfill for solid waste with a capacity of 454,000 cubic metres, and the overhauling of a main road.

Al Bader said the project in Sanliurfa aims to improve drinking water, renovate sewage network and redirect rainwater to prevent floods across the city.

KFAED has provided 12 loans worth 106 million Kuwaiti dinars to finance projects in different fields across Turkey, the news agency said. In January, it offered two grants of $20 million to contribute to the response plan to Syrian refugees’ crisis in the areas of health and education.
