THE STORY:

Dear Friends, As you all probably know, I am turning ten this Friday. I am very lucky to have a wonderful b-day with all my friends and family. I have a home and a school to go to. But some children are not as fortunate.There are over 3 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, and more than half are children like us most of them living outside refugee camps. For more than 5 years, some of them have been away from their homes, schools, and friends. 5 years of uncertainty, homesickness, and war.5 years is also too long, without school. So this year I have decided to ask you to join me in this cause - rising for refugee kids. Can you help me raise $500? I am fundraising to send help to refugee children. 100% of all donations will provide help like books and backpacks with education kits. Will you join me?

Your peer,

Defne Ustundag

BTF WDC IS RISING FOR SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILDREN

There are about 2.5 million Syrian refugees in Turkey.  Over 1 million are CHILDREN .  Most of them live outside of the refugee camps, trying to make it in major cities and border towns.

At this time, there is no prospect of returning home, no end in sight for the war. Without financial and social support, these refugee children have little to no opportunities for peace, prosperity, and stability in their lives.

RISE NOW. DON’T LET SYRIAN REFUGEE CHILDREN BE THE LOST GENERATION!

We can help them achieve continuity in their education; gain back the years that they have lost and their self-confidence; and provide them with the tools for a better life.

Bridge to Turkiye Fund (BTF) team worked very hard to bring you projects to help education of Syrian refugee children in Turkey. BTF projects are partnered with credible local NGO partners in Turkey led by dedicated and passionate individuals. 100% of your tax-exempt donations will have a DIRECT and IMMEDIATE impact.
