Support Syrian Refugee Children!

Let’s Rise for the Education of Syrian Refugee Children in Turkey…

DonateHere Before the crisis in Syria, nearly every child was enrolled in primary school, but as the conflict escalated, over a million refugee kids have been displaced in neighboring Turkey. To them and to their families education has become a luxury. Many children who ordinarily should have been in third or fourth grade by now, have had little or no schooling over the last 4 years. With your support, Bridge to Türkiye Fund is reaching out to provide basic educational essentials they are lacking… Here is what we are doing together for the Syrian Refugee Kids…

4However inconvenient, Turkey is helping its Neighbors…

Turkey has been on the front lines of the biggest refugee crisis since World War Two and now hosts the world’s largest refugee population. It shares a 566 miles border with Syria, and has so far adopted an ‘open-door policy’ towards those fleeing the civil war. With the conflict now in its fifth year, Turkey has spent nearly $8 Billion to care for 2.5 Million Syrian Refugees. A lot more can be done by the civilian sector, all around the globe.

Children are paying the heaviest price…

Humanitarian aid for the Syrian Refugees generally focuses on food, medicine and shelter. While half of the refugees are children, education receives less than 2% of total emergency aid. With limited academic opportunities, the region is now facing a long term Educational Emergency. Innocent victims of this war, children are not only traumatized, but are also deprived of the academic, emotional and social benefits of education. Without additional support, these children are in danger of becoming a Lost Generation.

Let us pledge them our support…


While some may think that it has become too big for any one person to help, we know the truth: We Can Help! Education can provide them with structure and a sense of normalcy to get them through these traumatic times. Please join our commitment to action. Little things, in many ways can make a big difference for them. Donate here…

As the saying goes, “One hundred years from now, It will not matter what kind of car I drove, What kind of house I lived in, Or how much money I had in the bank, But the world may be a better place because I made a difference in a child’s life.”
