Over 2.7 million Syrian Refugees, displaced by the war, currently reside in Turkey. Every 2 people out this number, is under 6-years-old.
Given all the challenges of trying to survive through the crisis, refugees’ biggest support today is being able to live with their families.
The newborns keep their hopes alive…
The first born children of the families who came to Turkey as ‘guests’ once the conflict and the bombing started in Syria, are now 5-years-old. It is very hard to raise a child, moving from place to place in search of comfort and peace. It is also very difficult for a baby to get the care and attention they need as its parents are in search for a home.
Adana Çaputçu is full of people who mostly refugee workers. To they continue their lives they are working as a seasonal agriculture worker.
Support to life had visted in Adana Çaputçu, families and supported to famlies by baby care kit and hygiene kit.
We had psycho-social activities with children in the field and we organized a photography workshop by teaching children how to take pictures.
In the 7th year of Syria Crisis, there are over 3 million refugees (nearly350thousand babies) resisding in Turkey with different needs. Families are trying to hold on to life with the bare minimum they have. However, they still thrive to live and continue on with their lives.
As Support to Life, we are trying to address the ongoing and upcoming issues to create a normal ground for those who fled from an extraordinary situation. Our staf who works in fields, which are Kayseri, Urfa, Hatay,Adana, Mersin, Diyarbakr, Istanbul are looking new hopes for new reffugee babies.
We also carried out pregnancy information programs within the scope of awareness trials in cooperation with the authorities in Turkey. They were on pregnancy, pregnancy process and newborn care and health services that they could access. There were 18 baby kit disturubuted.
We would like to thank each and every one of you once more for supporting lives. With the help of your valuable HELP we will have the opportunity to reach more refugee babies.Again we believe that every child has right to set-off in life with a good start.
