    In 2010, around a billion $ aid came from Government.
    Rest (about 700 million $) was from civil society and private companies.
    Specific numbers are in link.

    Figures for 2011 are not available, yet.
    But in 2011, Turkey donated to Somalia 500 million $ alone.

    The amount still doesn't match the alms given to Israel by USA.

    turkey is friends with the religion of peace'ers in Sudan that is perpetrating the genocide in Darfur.

    No love from the religion of peace'ers in turkey for the millions slaughtered in Sudan?

    What you call donations from government are nothing but money taken from citizens. At least give the credit to whom it belongs. Government cannot give what it does not first take.

    Turkey was co-hoster of development conference on South-Sudan on 15th December 2011 which took place in White-House and which was organized by 5 countries.
    And we have made specific commitments to development of South-Sudan's future.
    whitehouse.gov - FACT SHEET: Supporting South Sudan

    We recognized South-Sudan the same day USA did.

    Besides the development conference which took place some days ago in White-House and which we co-hosted, we already co-chaired a donor's conference on Sudan in 2010.

    JStone, if you don't know what you're talking about, just shut-up.
