Turkey donates Ft 10mn to kindergarten

The wife of Turkish President Erdogan gave more than Ft 10 million to a kindergarten in Kispest, Budapest’s 19th District, on Thursday, local Socialist mayor Péter Gajda announced in a Facebook post.

Gajda noted that the district has had sister city links for ten years with Istanbul-Pendik, and that is why Ermine Erdogan visited the Szivárvány kindergarten where Gajda and his colleagues received her.

He said the money was donated in the context of ongoing Turkish-Hungarian programmes for renovating the kindergarten and upgrading its equipment.
