Over the last three years, approximately 67,000 Uyghur Muslims have escaped to Turkey for safety.
Having fled horrific human rights abuses, the Uyghur refugees are now living in unstable conditions in a foreign country, with no guaranteed accommodation, work or support.
Uyghur refugees have already been through far too much; help us ease their burden today.
Donate now to provide emergency food and winter supplies.
STAND WITH UYGHUR MUSLIMS
The Uyghurs are a Muslim minority living in China, who are being targeted in what has been referred to by human rights activists as a “cultural genocide”.
Widespread surveillance has been reported in the Xinjiang area since authorities misleadingly collected DNA from Uyghur Muslims in 2017, for what people thought was a mandatory health check-up. Not long after that point, hundreds of thousands of Uyghur Muslims were sent to “re-education camps”.
The situation has rapidly worsened, with the Chinese Human Rights Defenders Reports estimating that there are now over 2 million Uyghur Muslims in “re-education programmes”, out of which there have been shocking first-hand accounts of people shackled day and night, women raped, organs harvested, families separated and Muslims forced to consume pork and alcohol.
Alhamdulillah, some of the persecuted Uyghur people have managed to flee, with the majority (67,000 people) residing in Turkey. But Turkey hosts the most refugees in the world, and therefore cannot provide adequate support for the vulnerable displaced Uyghurs.
HELP UYGHUR MUSLIMS
We are providing monthly food packages for 500 Uyghur families, as well as vital winter clothing to hundreds of Uyghur children between the ages of 5-12 years old in Istanbul, and the Kayseri and Eskişehir provinces.
This will make a real difference to struggling refugee families, so that they can begin to heal and rebuild a better life in safety.
Support your Uyghur brothers and sisters; they need you now more than ever.
Through our hard-working partners, Penny Appeal are delivering emergency aid to hundreds of Uyghur refugees in Turkey.
Due to the complex nature of disasters, our provisions may be changed so that we can adapt to people’s most urgent needs. You can rest assured that your donations will go towards helping vulnerable Uyghur's in the best, most efficient, ways possible. Thank you!
