Yatim Mandiri Helps Orphans of Syrian War Victims in Yasmin Balad Refugee Camp, Turkey
On Sunday (4/14), Yatim Mandiri had the opportunity to visit a refugee camp for orphans of victims of the Syrian war named Yasmin Balad who was Reyhanli, Hatay, Turkey. The arrival of the Chairperson of the Independent Orphanage Nur Hidayat, and Yatim Mandiri Managing Director Zaini Faisol, along with other Indonesian volunteer teams were welcomed by the children at Yasmin Balad.
During the visit, Yatim Mandiri also collaborated with Yasmin Balad to provide Rp. 1 billion in assistance for the operational costs of the orphaned children in the Yasmin Balad refugee camp for a year.
This was stated directly by Yatim Mandiri President Director, Zaini Faisol, that Yatim Mandiri in the near future will sign an MoU with Yasmin Balad. "God willing, we will try as soon as possible so that assistance can be useful for children here," he said.
In the Yasmin Balad refugee camp alone there were 60 orphans and orphans who were cared for. Yahdi Syarif, Operations Director Yasmin Balad expressed his appreciation for the cooperation that will be established with Yatim Mandiri. The feeling of emotion was felt when Yahdi Syarif said that this year was a difficult year for the management of Yasmin Balad refugee camp. "Because of the large operational costs, also the cost of renting a house is used as a refugee camp. The rental price has doubled, which makes the camp almost closed. "Even in some camps, similar orphans have begun to close, because of the heavy operational costs," he said.
With such conditions, of course, the concern of the Indonesian people is still needed. In particular, for orphans, orphans who are victims of the war in Syria. Let's be with Yatim Mandiri, we help the orphans of the victims of the Syrian war so that they can live properly. (*)
