Citizens of Hope Volunteers Reach Out to Refugees

23 November 2015 Comments Off on Citizens of Hope Volunteers Reach Out to Refugees

The Citizens of Hope Project (UYP) is one of TDP’s eleven projects. It is based on a series of events organized by Syrian and Somali refugees in Ankara to advance understanding of migration issues.

During the past two weeks, UYP collected donations to help meet refugees’ basic needs, mostly food, along with items for children. The volunteers succeeded in collecting almost 50 boxes of food, and on Sunday, November 22 they delivered the donations to refugees in several districts in Ankara.

If you want to help Syrian and Somali refugees, or if you have an interest in getting some experience in language teaching or other activities involving children, you are welcome to join UYP as a volunteer.
