Turkiye Diyanet Foundation (TDV) also distributed food packages to 45 families in Kazakhstan's Almati city.

The aid establishes a "bridge of brotherhood" between Turkey and Kazakhstan, said Galip Akin, the religious services adviser of Turkey's embassy in Astana.

Akin said that the TDV, a state-run aid group linked to Turkey's Presidency of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), has been holding events in some 100 countries and 323 regions during the Ramadan.

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) -- Turkey's state aid agency -- also provided 100 needy families in Nangarhar province, northern Afghanistan, with food aid.

Aid packages included flour, rice, oil, sugar, bean, green tea, pasta and chickpeas, said a statement by the agency's Kabul office.
