Support Refugee Babies in Turkey

Support to Life helps refugees access their basic needs and rights throughout the Covid-19 pandemic as always. We are trying to identify the current problems and to address the ongoing and upcoming issues.

Currently, 3.6 million Syrians live in Turkey and roughly half of these are children. It is very difficult to provide the care and attention that babies need while trying to find a job, a safe place for quarantine. We support the lives of refugee babies in these difficult times by providing them and their mothers with the necessary basic care items like diapers.

We focused on the refugee babies to ensure timely and adequate provision of relevant services, and on their families to keep them informed about Covid-19 risks, vulnerabilities, and precautions that need to be taken. To support life and meet the needs, we first conduct a needs assessment in our working fields and we collaborated with the public authorities during the process. Identifying the problems and needs was the first step. Then we provided the care packs and diapers needed.

For building a future together we support life by identifying the problems and developing solutions for them. We believe that today's babies are the ones who are going shape the future and every child is ours. With your help, we can reach more refugee babies.

32 babies received hygiene packages with your donations.

We come together with food

The world becomes more and more challenging and darksome with the pandemic. As Support to Life, we always try to find ways to come together and overcome the difficulties. This time, we are representing to you our graduates from the food production courses.

3.6 million Syrians living in Turkey, face the risk of losing their jobs, failing to satisfy the basic needs and violations of human rights. To create a new livelihood opportunity and support women empowerment, we started a new educational activity in the Culture Center for women in Altnözü. Refugee women received food production courses along with Turkish women contributing a more colorful and rich joint culture at the same time.

Women came together thanks to food and enjoyed producing with each other. The training was on foods that can be sold in markets like delicious marmalade or foods that are common and popular in Turkish cuisine. The training enabled women from local and refugee communities to socialize, and was based on a community-based approach that puts the emphasis on skills building as well as knowledge-exchange. 21 Syrian and 10 Turkish women, will be receiving completion certificates from the Public Education Centre.

For building a better future together, we support life by empowering women. We seek to help refugees resume their self-reliant, independent lives as individuals. With your help we can reach out to more women and create a new path to walk on altogether.

Supporting life to meet needs

Support to Life helps refugees access their basic needs and rights throughout the Covid-19 pandemic as always. We are trying to identify the current problems and to address the ongoing and upcoming issues.

Covid-19 pandemic hits the vulnerable groups harder by causing the unemployment and loss of income and restricting the access to the needs, sometimes even the most basic and essential ones. The refugees in Turkey constitute one of the most affected groups by the outbreak.

Currently, 3.6 million Syrians live in Turkey and roughly half of these are children. It is very difficult to provide the care and attention that babies need while trying to find a job, a safe place for quarantine.
