The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) on Monday distributed food and hygiene packs to families in Nairobi.
The agency provided food packages and hygiene kits to an approximate 415 families and orphans in Biafra estate in Nairobi.
On Sunday, TIKA announced plans to distribute 36 tons of food aid to 1,200 families and orphan children who live in the slums of the capital within a month.
Last week TIKA provided food packages and hygiene kits for members of the Muslim community observing Ramadan.
The package was handed to 215 families in Kariobangi South in Nairobi and at facilities that rescue orphaned and abandoned children.
According to TIKA, the agency has assisted Kenya in different areas, including poverty reduction programs, helping in the health sector and agricultural productivity aid.
The agency promised to continue assisting the needy living in slams.

President Recep Erdoğan administration said his government and investors will play a part in helping Kenya achieve its “Big Four” priority areas announced by President Uhuru Kenyatta, which include food security, universal health coverage, affordable housing and enhancing manufacturing.
