President Mustafa Akıncı has said that a community which was part of the European Union existed in North Cyprus despite the fact that it was not internationally recognised by the world.

No matter how isolated the Turkish Cypriot community is no one can change the fact that it is part of the EU”, he said.

Akıncı thanked the volunteers who will be donating a sum of €5,000 to the Çağlayan Orphanage.

Members of The Robinson Club departed from the Belgian town of Vorselaar 16 days ago, travelling to the TRNC via bus.

The volunteers distributed over 1300 toys at orphanages in Croatia and Bulgaria, passing through 10 countries before arriving at their final destination in the TRNC.
