This past month, there was an ongoing effort to help immigrants with food vouchers. The people coming into the country are going through quite a vetting process, and many are entering with very little in the way of financial resources.

How We Help Immigrants

More and more immigrants are coming into the country, so we want to help them get settled and adjusted as quickly as possible. There are different ways we provide help. One is a distribution centre which feely provides clothing to immigrants. We also offer nine rooms available for boarding.

Refugees Will Receive Needed Help

Smyrna, Turkey

 

It has been a busy networking time for us. Our organisation is growing and becoming known by more and more people. First, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality reached out to us by conducting an interview about the work we do among disadvantaged women. They think we're doing a great job of giving more women hope! This publicity will be very helpful to reach new people to get to know us and potentially support us.
