Hunger in Turkey

Millions of Syrian refugees have fled to Turkey for safety, which has put a lot of strain on the Turkish economy. We’ve been working in the town most affected by the refugee crisis, Kilis. The original Turkish population of Kilis was 94,000, but it’s estimated that the number of refugees living in Kilis now is around 116,000 people.

Most of these refugees are living in poverty, with serious nutritional issues. Rent and food prices have understandably soared in Kilis, making it difficult for the Syrian families to afford to eat. We’re asking for your help - by simply donating £1 you will provide a meal to those who need it most.

With just £1, you can feed refugees in need. Your small change will provide food to those who would otherwise go without, and provide a desperately needy person with a nutritious meal.

For just £30, you can help poor Syrian refugees in Turkey by providing someone with one meal every single day for a month.

This Ramadan, Penny Appeal aims to distribute over 40,000 meals to Syrian refugees struggling to survive in Turkey.

We’ll be providing daily meals, we will be distributing food hampers, organising community iftar and suhoor programmes, gifting essential household items and clothing and providing healthcare and medicine to up to 16,000 Syrian families in need.


Penny Appeal will endeavour to use your gift as requested, wherever possible. If for any reason we cannot use your donation as you have indicated, we will use it to fund similar projects in other countries or other projects in the relevant country.
