Help Ibrahim Go Back To School.


This is Ibrahim he is 11years old from Aleppo in Syria and now living with his family in Izmir. Since we heard his story a few days ago he has been on our mind a lot. He used to attend school but now has to work to help his family pay rent and survive. He works long hours in a tea house from 8am until 7pm serving tea, cleaning up and running errands. He earns just 200tl ( 47 gbp,68 usd) per month but the family's monthly rent is 320tl ( 75 gbp, 108 usd).
His story has touched a cord with my husband Mehmet as at the age of 9yrs we was sent away to Ku┼čadasi from the east of Turkey to earn money to help keep the family. He missed a lot of school and has always regretted it and made sure that all his 5 brothers and 2 sisters have gone to school. Education has the power to transform children’s futures. We're determined to ensure that Ibrahim gets an education and the chance to write his own future.

We have decided to help to make Ibrahim's life a little easier and go back to school by helping to pay the rent for the family. If you would like to help Ibrahim go back to school please click on the donate button below.

LILY Refugee Drop In Centre


We set up the Drop in centre because we became aware of the desperate needs of destitute refugees living on our streets, many of whom go hungry and survive predominantly on the kindness of friends. Also the need to help stop these desperate refugees from making the perilous trip across the sea.



LILY drop in centre will be a welcoming, warm and friendly space. To help refugees and people facing poverty/ destitution, homelessness or struggling to triumph over adversity. Our drop in will be a safe place to come for a rest, children can play with toys, there will be a hot drink and when we can a hot meal. we will provide nearly-new,new and hand made clothing, footwear, toiletries and sanitary items to individuals in need and we always have hand made blankets that we can hand out when needed, food parcels and a supermarket voucher. When funds allow we will add a shower and washing machine services also.
We will aim promote good health and offer free advice and support, as well as the opportunity to meet organisations that can help with all kinds of problems. 


Our vision is a community in which all refugees are welcomed, valued and able to participate fully in society”
