Project Report | Jun 27, 2023

Dear donor,

In our previous report, we told you about 3600 existing CYDD scholarship students either living or studying in the earthquake affected region of Turkey.

Many other students living in this area had to leave their damaged homes and hometowns with their families and moved to temporary lodgings provided by the state or by their relatives in different towns. With this wave of internal migration, CYDD branches in other towns such as Mersin, Bursa, Ankara and Izmir were faced with a new demand for scholarships in March 2023.

We made a fast survey to confirm the needs of the applicants and accepted 2600 new scholarship students two thirds of whom being university students. We paid their monthly scholarships for 4 months till end June and provided some with laptops so they could follow the education which become remote after the earthquake. Meanwhile with the rising inflation, cost of living has doubled and we have made a decision to double in Turkish liras the monthly scholarships we will pay during the 2023-24 school year.

Many corporations and individuals offered us help to support these students at the aftermath of the earthquake. However the earthquake relief aids have now slowed down but we are under the obligation of supporting these students till their graduation and need your donations more than ever.

Thank you for being with us..
