It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in our giving.
Turkish and Syrian youth regularly contribute their time and energy to assist in our refugee programs. Volunteers coming from abroad are requested to contact us well in advance of any visit, to work out the legalities of your proposed trip, as well as the timing. We can only receive short-term volunteers at present. We ask all volunteers to bring a financial gift, to give directly to a refugee family, or as a scholarship for a child. See our Donate page for more ideas on how to help a refugee family.
Adana is a major center for Syrian refugees. Adana is the regional medical center of southeast Turkey and now for Syrians. Refugees from the border with serious medical issues are usually sent to Adana. Refugees here often find menial labor working on the many farms in the region or in factories, shops. Many join the list of Adana's unemployed.
As Adana is more than 100 miles from the Syrian border, it is often neglected by many of the international aid agencies who work on the border in cities as Gaziantep and Reyhanli. Many aid workers have found the need in Adana just as great as on the border, as there are less facilities and organizations to help refugees.
