Charity description

The Tribe Turkey logo
Your donation is super! It means The Tribe Turkey can continue working with displaced Syrian Refugees in the city and rural areas of Izmir, Turkey.

There are signs of change in Turkey, but problems exist. Refugees have been given some rights. Access to education & medical support is improving but limited. In reality changes are not well implemented.

Language barriers & exploitive working conditions mean economic opportunities are limited for Syrians. Housing is a real problem. Overall, living conditions are extremely hard.

Everyone deserves
  • Somewhere safe to live
  • The right to education
  • To work or learn new skills

At The Tribe Turkey
  • It's our mission to maximise the impact we can have by funding projects helping people in need
  • Our aim is to help people integrate & interact as we strive to resolve community problems
  • We collaborate. Listening & brainstorming the issues with those we help allows us to enact empowering social change
  • By building relationships with people & understanding needs we are more effective
  • We involve Turkish businesses & collaborate with other groups & international higher education partners

Our first 6 months: Impact
  • Crisis: Winterisation - delivered 3,000 blankets, 500+ mattresses, 250 wood heaters, 3,500 bags (90 tonnes) of firewood and plastic weather coverings
