Background

During the conflict in Syria, when the Turkish borders were open, round 3.5 million Syrian refugees crossed over into Turkey to safety. 

However a few years ago, the borders were closed to any further Syrian refugees entering Turkey. This left around 6.5 million Syrian refugees living in poor conditions in tents at the border of Turkey in Syria. Of these 6.5 million, 80% are women and children! We are talking about 2.5 to 3 million children who have nowhere else to go. Many more children are being born in this state. 

The borders will not open to these Syrian refugees– they cannot enter Turkey nor can they return back into Syria. Most have no home to return to. Either way, it is not safe for them. They will risk losing their lives. May Allah protect us all! 

These Syrian families have nowhere else to go. 

SKT is a charity with a 100% donation policy and their Safe Haven Villages are being built on Land close to the Turkish border in a safe buffer zone. It is a no fly zone. There are 72 watch points and the area has the presence of the Turkish Army. 

Each village will have 250 homes, a mosque, madarassa and a school. The families will also have access to free medical care from the SKT hospital close by. The most vulnerable of families will be moved first.

Each home will have 2 rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. The families we are helping are those who have been living in tents without the security of even a door! The life they are living is not normal.  My goal is to help the dream of many of these Syrians come true – the dream of a home. But I cannot do this without your help. Please join me in building at least 20 homes inshaAllah.

For anyone wanting to donate for a full house at £1250, feedback will be given in the form of a USB with videos of the family you have provided a home for. The videos will show their journey moving from their tent to their new home. You can also have a plaque on the house. Feel free to contact me to give your details for a plaque and contact details for feedback to be sent to you once your donation has been delivered.
