in IZMIR families are homeless but not hopeless

I am Ilker, grown up in IZMIR (Smyrna) in a cute place called “Şirinyer”, which means “cute place” by the way. 

We all are dealing with unexpected situations in our lives. It could be within your neighbourhood, within your family or a different country. It could be a disease, which one family member is fighting against or it could be a disease the humanity is fighting against. It could be an accident, changing your life. Or a natural disaster in IZMIR, where families become homeless.

Whatever the situation is and wherever it is - most importantly - suffering people should never lose their hope. And with your help, I would love to carry back hope into homes in cute places all around the world. And with my first help I want to help people where I did my first steps.

Your spending will help local families to find hope by material support as they lost many material things. We are buying kids toys so they can play through these hard days with some joy...with your help.
