More than 3 million Syrian refugees, displaced by the war, currently reside in Turkey. According to official data, nearly 280,000 refugee babies were born in Turkey between the years 2011 and 2017. Support to Life has been helping refugees access their basic needs and rights throughout this period mainly through its Refugee Protection and Emergency Assistance programs. With your contributions, we will be able to provide "Newborn Care Packages" to refugee mothers.
The newborn children of the families who came to Turkey as 'guests' once the conflict and the bombing started in Syria are now 7-years-old. In the precarity of their situation, in a perpetual move from location to location 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 of a home.
We cannot provide all they lack to those children, who were born into this world as refugees. However, we can support the first days of their new lives by providing them and their mother's with the necessary basic care and hygiene items they need. A baby care bag, including the necessary basic care and hygiene items, only costs $70.
This one time support will allow the newborn babies to start their life with the baby products they need in order to keep them warm and comfortable. Thanks to your contributions, we have reached our initial target of 200 packs. Join us and let's reach out to at least 200 more!
