Warm support

, ,

It may look sunny, but winter is well and truly here for our families in Turkey.

This year, we’re trying as best we can to avoid freezing cold nights and sick kids. Whether living in a tent or a house, simple, basic wood heating makes all the difference.

This truck load is for 30 families (around 200 people). 17 tonnes, 700 x 25kg bags – enough to last about a month.

We paid £400.

Only £400!

We’ll do the same tomorrow somewhere else.

Please chuck in some money to give some warm support. We will keep updating you here or over at The Tribe Turkey so you can see exactly the impact of the money raised.


Supporting families with firewood!

, ,

I lost count… but we distributed about 800 bags of firewood today.

Come dusk it was FREEZING. Families here had nothing but plastic and twigs from trees to burn. So when we cranked up the stove inside the tent at the end of the day, it was toasty warm, food could be cooked, and it felt like the biggest relief.

You can support families with wood for winter through our partners The Tribe Turkey here:



We love you, Nagahm!

“This is Nagahm.

I got a phone call from her dad last night.

My Arabic isn’t so good so we just exchanged some basic greetings, but then he said Nagham wanted to say hello.

Kids love a phone don’t they!

I could hear her dad coaxing her in the background. Then she piped up in her cute little voice…

“I. love. you” she said!


I love you too Nagahm”

Meet Mohamed, our new hero.


Meet Mohamed.

He’s my new hero.

Mohamed was a physiotherapist back in Syria but when he fled to Turkey with his family, he had to find whatever work that he could to support them.

He now lives in Izmir, a city in Turkey, where I met him.

In his evenings and spare time, he would visit other Syrian families in the area to treat their disabled kids.

There are lots of Syrian children in Izmir suffering from cerebral palsy and scoliosis, often as a result of trauma.

The Syrians in the area have little to no access to health care so these kids were slowly deteriorating, some even dying from things like scoliosis, which can be treated by a physiotherapist like Mohamed.

Recently, an amazing Irish volunteer called Anne (founder of the local community centre TIAFI) recognised this desperate need and promised to pay Mohamed’s wages for the next year, if he could treat these children full time.

We need funds for Mohamed’s physio space inside TIAFI and some very basic equipment like a ‘walking stair’ so he can keep do this life-saving work.
