UWOSP for Orphans in Turkiye & Syria

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $8,640 to sponsor 8 orphans for a year from Turkiye and Syria. This sponsorship will provide orphans, facing the dire conditions left behind by the earthquake, with access to basic life necessities such as nutritious food, clean water, quality healthcare, safe shelter, educational support, and psychosocial support.

Thousands of children have been orphaned following a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Southern Turkey and Northern Syria. In the aftermath of the greatest disaster to hit this year, children continue to pay the heaviest price. Every orphan affected by the earthquake is a child deprived of their basic rights and protection, subject to vulnerability, loss, and destruction. Their futures look unsafe, uncertain and bleak. By sponsoring an orphan from Turkey or Syria, you can help save and transform the lives of vulnerable children in this disaster zone. Your support can help them recover and restore their stolen childhoods.

   How is Islamic Relief Canada helping?   

Islamic Relief has been supporting orphans in Turkey and from Syria for years now. We are well experienced in the safeguarding of children and ensuring they receive the best chance at a bright future. By providing access to nutritional services, health care, water solutions, education and family livelihood support, as well as striving to tackle critical issues, including gender-based violence, child labor and climate change that affect local communities and, in particular young girls, we’re not only transforming futures – we’re saving lives.
