Gathering For Social Change

First Office of our association has been opened in İzmir / Torbalı.

Syrian refugees in Torbalı struggle for living under very difficult conditions. There is no offical refugee camp in Torbalı, a relatively dispersed settlement because of the characteristics of the area. For this reason, aids forwarded to the region insufficent. First Hope Association could not further ignore the situation and we opened the doors of our Association’s first Office to Syrians refugees in need, earlier than planned.

We started to work right away on the list of requirements we prepared on our initial findings as the result of our works carried out in the region where more than 5000 Syrian refugees live.

Within the time frame since our office started operations, we have met the demands on basic requirements like,

  • Bim card
  • Diapers
  • Follow-on milk
  • Formula
  • Wet wipes
  • Tooth brush
  • Tooth paste
  • Nal scissors
  • Razor blades
  • Hand soap
  • Hygienic pad.

Washing machines in our office are made available for Syrian refugees in specific days of a week.

The only objective of our Representation is to provide the refugees the optimum conditons in accordance with their need, and also carry out works for covering their requirements in terms of education, skills and social skills.

We, our ever growing family, continue to work in full speed with your support to deserve your trust…
