Help Refugee Kids Start School
There are over 3.4 million refugees now living in Turkey, making Turkey the host country with the largest population of refugees in the world. Most of these people live outside camps in various cities and towns across the country.
Given how long these wars have been going on, most of these kids are getting their first opportunity to go to school now at public schools in Turkey.
All they need is a backpack and some basic school supplies to help them get started! We are partnering with a local church that is working to serve refugee families in their neighborhood.
Each set will include a backpack, notebooks, pencils, pens, an eraser, and colored pencils. Older students will also get the geometry ruler set. The cost to purchase one of these is $15. With your help, we will be able to help 100 refugee kids go to school this month!
UPDATE: We've met our goal! Thank you! 100 refugee kids are getting to go to school! Check below for other ways to help out!

These guys have been working in Iraq for 25 years. Glad I could help them do their job.

I can't afford much, but I like knowing I can make a real difference for someone.
I always wanted our church to help out but never knew how. So glad to learn about ShopForRefugees!
