We are a small group of international women in Istanbul, Turkey trying to help the growing humanitarian crises in Ukraine.
We currently have a group of around 30-40 women and their young children who have fled Ukraine and are currently trying to seek refuge in Turkey. These women have very little resources or family support.
We are trying to pull together the funds to get them transported by bus to Istanbul and settled, temporarily and for the long term if needed. We currently have 18 amazing humans who are volunteering to give them places to stay but we are also in the middle of severe economic crises here in Turkey and we can not do all of this on our own. So, we are reaching out to you for financial assistance.
They need money for their transportation, food, living assistance, healthcare, etc.
We are working on short to long-term plans for these women and children as we have no idea how long this war will go on and if they will have anything left to go back to once it is over. Their husbands are fighting in Ukraine and they are all alone.
We are connecting them with as many resources as we can, including the Ukrainian diaspora here in Istanbul, a few of whom are also involved in this organization.
Please help with any financial assistance you can provide to help get these women into safe and stable living conditions, so they are able to focus on healing and not on if they will be able to feed and shelter their children.
The dollar goes a long way in Turkey as the Turkish Lira is currently 15 - 1 US dollar.
Thank you so much from our little, yet growing aid organization and the women and children you will be assisting.
I will post updates as often as I can so you can know where your money has gone and more about the families you are helping.
