Supporting refugees in Turkey

£1,250 of £10,000 goal

Currently 3 million refugees are living in Turkey with little, if any support from the government. As Lighthouse Church in Yalova we are helping 200 Syrian families with food, clothes, medication, stoves, mattresses, blankets, nappies and baby milk. We urgently need £10,000 to continue supporting them and many other refugees from Iran and Iraq.

Me and my family moved in 2000 from Germany to Yalova/Turkey to continue our relief ministry we started after the 1999 Marmara earthquake in which 45.000 people died. We were building schools and other buildings with an earthquake proof system. After that we started a church that by now consists of  85% refugees from Iraq, Syria and Iran.  I am the senior pastor of this church. We encouraged refugees from our church to help other refugees. Someones faith does not matter to us when it comes to support.  For example, the leader of the Syrian refugee help ministry is a Syrian refugee himself and he leads a team of Iraqi, Iranian, English and American team members, that visit the Syrian families three times a week. During their visit they make notes of the needs and decide later to gether in which way they can help. 

We are not just serving refugees in the provice of Yalova, but through our refugee led help committees we  serve refugees in 15 other provinces in Turkey. 

Isabel Turner will withdraw the funds and will bring it to Turkey on her visit in July where she and others will serve the refugees.
