TİKA Continues to Support Education in Yemen

The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) repaired and equipped the 250-student capacity boys’ dormitory of Emin Nashir Health Institute in the city of Aden in Yemen.

TİKA supported the 250-student capacity boys’ dormitory of Emin Nashir Health Institute in Yemen’s provisional capital Aden, through repairs and equipment. Aden Emin Nashir Health Institute was established in 1970 and it has 4 hospitals in its care. The Institute, which was established to train qualified personnel for the hospitals, played a major role in the training of doctors and especially nurses after South Yemen gained its independence.

Aden Emin Nashir Health Institute Vice-Dean Dr. Jamal Abdurrahim stated that in its early years, the institute targeted middle school graduates, whereas later, it started to serve high school graduates. Dr. Abdurrahim pointed out the incidents that have been going on in Yemen in the recent years and said, “Especially our students coming from outside the town had to put their education on hold as the dormitories were unusable. In these difficult times, we wholeheartedly thank TİKA for offering repair and equipment support to our student dormitory.  We currently have 380 students attending but thanks to TİKA’s aid, we will be able to admit more students. Turkey’s support has given us great strength and motivation.”

TİKA Yemen Coordinator Abdullah Sarı stated that TİKA will continue to be by the side of the Yemeni people and explained that they have implemented many projects, especially on education, allowing hundreds of students to be admitted to various universities in Turkey. Sarı expressed that they will continue to pass on Turkey’s experience on education to Yemen and that they will keep contributing to other fields in Yemen, in addition to their emphasis on education.
