ANKARA, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Some 2,393 babies have been born at refugee camps in Turkey for Syrians fleeing from clashes in their home country since early 2011, Turkish officials said Monday.

Syrian refugees are sheltering in 17 camps in eight Turkish provinces and Turkey provides education in 372 schools for 26,315 Syrian children, according to figures Xinhua obtained from Turkish officials.

Turkey also provides 110 courses for 24, 364 Syrian adults to develop their manual skills, the officials added.

The total number of Syrian refugees registered in the camps in Turkey increased to 182,621, Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate announced Friday.

More than 280,00 Syrian refugees, including those unregistered, have got more than 600 million U.S. dollars of aid from the Turkish government.

Turkey opened a coordination center in southern Gaziantep province, where Syrian refugees can get registered and seek access to assistance, with another four under construction.
