Turkey is No. 1 in global humanitarian aid
Turkey is No.1 in the world for the provision of humanitarian aid, according to the 2013 report by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency released on Sunday.
Turkey managed $4.3 billion in humanitarian aid sent through its official channels and non-profit organizations around the world, and that amount, with respect to Turkey’s Gross National Product, ranks it as first in the world. Countries are ranked in the report by the amount of aid provided with respect to the country’s GNP.
The report explains that the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency played an important role in conducting Turkey’s “soft power” foreign policy.
