Focus on Turkey

While Turkey has a relatively strong economy when compared to some of the other countries Islamic Relief serves, a large portion of its people suffer from poverty. In addition, Turkey lies in a region that is susceptible to natural disasters, namely earthquakes, wildfires, and more.

And as Turkey continues to look for ways to improve conditions for its people, it also is working to continue to provide aid to refugees who have fled to Turkey to escape violence in their home countries. This has added a strain on its resources.

With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Turkey are resilient, and with the support of donors like you, families in need can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Turkey

Islamic Relief Turkey opened its offices in the 2000s to serve as an implementing office to assist refugees fleeing to Turkey. As their work continues, they also assist Turks in need. And in times of emergency, like an earthquake that struck in 2017, Islamic Relief donors provided food and hygiene kits to survivors. More than 400 families were helped, including more than 600 school-aged children.

Here are a few of our most recent efforts for families in need across Turkey:

  • Providing emergency aid to disaster survivors
  • Supporting livelihood programs to help farmers
  • Delivering supplies to help refugee families

We Need YOUR Help

As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of a better Turkey a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA’s Turkey fund may serve urgent or long-term programs in Turkey for vulnerable Turks or for refugees, or for Turkish refugees living in other countries.
