Can I sponsor a Syrian orphan?
Yes, you can absolutely direct your donations towards orphans either inside Syria or in Turkey. You have the option of sponsoring schooling for your orphan in Turkey as well.
Can I physically adopt an orphan?
As far as we know then adoption of Syrian orphans is not possible. There are many reasons for this incl. religious, cultural, and political. However, the Syrian children are very vulnerable and the orphans especially so which is why sponsorship is a huge, huge help.
Where does my orphan live?
The orphans we help are either inside Syria or in Turkey.
Can I get updates on my sponsored orphan?
Right now resources are very tight, but we are doing what we can to keep long-term sponsor and orphan in Turkey connected. This is for the sake of both the child and the sponsoring adult/family since it creates an emotional bond and in addition might be the orphan’s only hope for a tertiary education years down the road.
What does the monthly donation cover?
The monthly donation cover basic food, baby milk, diapers and some clothing for the child. It also covers the transfer and oversight fees on an as needed basis. Many Syrian children do not go to school because they have to be out looking for means to bring food home, but the orphan program actively encourages the orphans to go to school and our orphan coordinators supervise that they have options for schools to attend and that they go so they can get an education.
Will our sponsored children in Turkey be going to school?
Yes, there is an option to add schooling for your sponsored child, but it is not covered by the basic sponsorship.
What is the monthly sponsorship cost?
Orphans in Syria $50
Orphans in Turkey $100
Orphans in Turkey with schooling $185
