The opening ceremony of the fishponds was attended by the Second Secretary of the Turkish Embassy in Yaounde, Lebriz Aytek Artunay; Senator of Southwest Region of Cameroon, Ekoko Mukete; TİKA’s Coordinator in Yaounde, Burak Özden; and the invitees.

TİKA’s Coordinator in Yaounde, Özden, stated that their goal with the renewed fishponds is to support children’s healthy and adequate nutrition and to enable the orphanage to pay for its expenses through selling the extra fish.

Within the project, two fishponds were renewed with modern methods, and juvenile fish, fish feed, and the necessary equipment and supplies were delivered to the orphanage administration. Also, the drying oven that was built enabled the produced fish to be contained for long periods with traditional methods.
