Safe Haven for Refugees

Safe Haven for Refugees is a group of concerned individuals who have come together to provide lifelines and support for the most desperate cases of refugee families in southern Turkey - especially widows and orphans. We focus on immediate aid to rescue these most vulnerable families by providing finances for one year’s rent of safe housing and regular food assistance, followed by guidance towards attaining stability and self-sufficiency. We understand that life-changing financial assistance for desperate refugee situations is not huge, and actually within our capabilities.
