The mission of our organization is to create a support network for the people who struggle with deep poverty and to make their challenges more visible. Deep poverty is defined as living in a household with a total cash income below 50 percent of its poverty threshold. In Istanbul only, it is estimated that over 5000 households are living in deep poverty.
We recently conducted a report on the situation of 2000 households in 34 districts in Istanbul to understand what would be the needed policies to be implemented to work on solving deep poverty. Since March 2020, thanks to the donations from private individuals, we have been also able to support these households with food, rent, and expense support.
Help us to continue our action.
This Christmas we aim to collect 12.000$ to meet the needs of 130 families. Every 75$ meets the food needs of a family of 5 for a month.
Looking for ideas for the present to give to friends and family this Christmas?
Offer them the joy to have contributed to feeding a family in need.
Let’s extend all together our network of solidarity
