Syrian Refugees Emergency


The Syrian civil war, now in its second decade, has resulted in one of the largest refugee crises in recent history. Over 6.6 million Syrians have been displaced, with more than 3.6 million seeking refuge in Turkey. These refugees face numerous challenges, from integrating into a new society to accessing basic necessities like food and shelter. In response to their ongoing needs, especially in terms of food security, Humanity-Increased is launching a Food Pantry initiative tailored for Syrian refugees residing in Turkey.

Humanity-Increased’s Food Pantry Initiative for Syrian Refugees

Our initiative aims to provide sustainable, dignified support to Syrian refugees through the establishment of Food Pantries in communities with high refugee populations. This approach is not only about meeting immediate nutritional needs but also about empowering refugees to make choices for themselves and their families, respecting their dignity and autonomy.

Why a Food Pantry?

  • Continuous Support: The Food Pantry ensures that Syrian refugees have access to essential food supplies throughout the year, addressing food insecurity on a long-term basis.
  • Dignity and Choice: By allowing refugees to choose their food, we acknowledge their individuality and personal preferences, offering a sense of normalcy and respect.
  • Empowerment and Integration: Managed by both local Turkish citizens and Syrian refugees, the pantry fosters community integration, provides employment opportunities, and empowers individuals.
  • Efficient Resource Use: Our direct partnerships with local vendors ensure that donations are utilized effectively, maximizing the impact on the refugee community.

The Situation for Syrian Refugees in Turkey:

Turkey hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees globally, providing them with temporary protection status. Despite significant efforts by the Turkish government and international community to support these refugees, challenges remain, particularly in terms of sustainable food access. Our Food Pantry initiative is designed to complement existing efforts by providing a reliable source of nutrition and support.

How Can You Help?

Your support can significantly impact the lives of Syrian refugees in Turkey. A donation of $25 can help us stock our Food Pantries with a variety of essential food items, offering refugees the support they need to rebuild their lives.

“Your generosity can provide hope and much-needed support to Syrian refugees, helping them to face the future with confidence. Join us in our commitment to delivering aid with dignity and making a lasting difference in the lives of those displaced by conflict.
