Kimse Yok Mu brought a total of 607 Somali students to Turkey last academic year. Their education expenses are met by the organization. They study in different provinces across the nation.
Meanwhile, a dinner event was also held by Gül in honor of the Somali president. Gül said at the event that the Turkish people stand by Somali with all their means. Mohamud noted that the visit represents that Somali is leaving hard times behind and a new, more representative state is being born. “Somali people and their intellectuals and politicians look after their country and have begun to build a future with hope and excitement,” he said.
Gül recalled that the history of Turkey-Somalia relations dates back to the 16th century, during which the kinship of the two nations has strengthened.
Mohamud stated that Somali feels the presence of Turkey with them and they are happy with the support of the Turks for the future of their country.
