على روح الشاب حمزة الخطيب ابن المشرفة في فريق محمد قدوتنا اريج الفواعير

To Allah, we belong, and to Him, we shall return. With broken hearts, on behalf of the entire Our Leader Mohammad Team, our sincere condolences to our team member Areej Al-Fawaeer for the passing of her dear son Hamzah. Hamzah was so sweet and special to Areej and always spoke about his love of planting. As a team, we wanted to benefit Hamzah and our community with a sadaqah jariya on his behalf and collecting to plant gardens in Turkey for refugees. May Allah accept this sadaqah jariya to elevate him and us to the highest heavens with our beloved Prophet Mohammadﷺ. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it but is regarded as a charitable gift for him." (Sahih Bukhari) قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ يَغْرِسُ غَرْسًا، أَوْ يَزْرَعُ زَرْعًا، فَيَأْكُلُ مِنْهُ طَيْرٌ أَوْ إِنْسَانٌ أَوْ بَهِيمَةٌ، إِلاَّ كَانَ لَهُ بِهِ صَدَقَةٌ ‏"‏‏.‏ وَقَالَ لَنَا مُسْلِمٌ حَدَّثَنَا أَبَانُ، حَدَّثَنَا قَتَادَةُ، حَدَّثَنَا أَنَسٌ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏.‏

More than 3.6 Million Syrian Refugees in Turkey; Livelihood Support is Vital

Turkey hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees in the world–topping 3.6 million. While many had come to Turkey, expecting to return to Syrian within weeks, the reality is that, 11 years later, they haven’t been able to return home. 

Many of these refugee families are also orphan families, whose children have lost their father or both of their parents. Enduring so many hardships already, these families are often hurled into poverty without a way out–instead of going to school or having a safe home, many children and mothers have had to resort to begging in the streets for paltry change or help, in the hopes of getting something to eat.

IRUSA Program to Livelihood Opportunities to Orphan Families in Need

To help Syrian refugee orphan families gain access to resources and livelihood opportunities, IRUSA, through the support of humanitarians like you, is implementing a powerful program that will support some 354 families. 

The ultimate goal of this project is to reduce the suffering and increase and maintain the human dignity and resilience of Syrian orphan refugee girls and boys and their mothers/caregivers in Turkey. You can give them the opportunity to break through the chains of poverty and hopelessness and reach success. 

Here are just some of the interventions we are working on:

  • Providing orphan families shelter support, including monthly rental and utilities payments

  • Delivering food, hygiene kits, and clothing to those living in an orphanage, and providing vouchers so that caregivers can go shopping for necessities in a dignified manner

  • Providing tablets to gain access to online resources, and stationery and utensils for note-taking needs

  • Making education and educational resources available to children, and following up on their attendance

  • Setting up enrollment for Turkish language lessons

  • Providing health support for those with chronic conditions

  • Opening up economic opportunities for women, including through entrepreneurial training in categories like computer skills, craftsmanship, and hairstyling; technical support; counseling; and more.

  • Conducting focus groups to ensure the people served are being supported effectively and efficiently
