Refugee Protection International is delighted to have been recognized as a grantee of the 2019 New England International Donors Giving Circle on Refugees. Thanks to their generosity and our dedicated individual supporters, we have co-designed and launched a self-reliance project for Syrian refugee women and children in southern Turkey in collaboration with our onsite partner. Kids Paradise, a refugee-led organization, will provide employment support and interim social support to some of the most vulnerable single-female headed households in Antakya. The project includes vocational, skills, and language training, work permit application and fee coverage, psychosocial support, individual mental health, housing subsidies, and referrals to service providers. RPI will oversee this much-needed project and invite foreign brands to engage the participation of their Turkish supply chains. www.refugeeprotection.org ... See MoreSee Less

Support the defenseless this Giving Tuesday. Innocent children should not bear the brunt of war. And yet, they struggle to access life-saving services in displacement. With your gift we can support medications at a vital primary health clinic serving 5,115 women and children per month in war-torn Syria. This clinic is operated by our partner SIMRO, a non-governmental nonprofit registered in Turkey that is staffed by the bravest of Syrian doctors. In the past few months, we’ve funded pharmaceutical supplies for over 8,300 IDPs and local patients at the Internal Medicine Hospital in Idlib. With the elderly cared for, please help us assist the young. By supporting RPI, you are empowering refugees to assist one another.

Nearly 200 Syrian refugees join RPI in thanking its giving partners for contributing to an emergency shelter response in Arsal, Lebanon. With your generosity, we supported local nonprofit URDA in waterproofing replacement shelters in a temporary refugee settlement in this mountainous region. Having lost so much in war-torn Syria, refugees had suddenly found their makeshift shelters in Lebanon demolished or at risk thereof due to recent developments. You made it possible to assist them in line with Lebanese housing codes before the harsh onset of winter snow. #grateful @ www.refugeeprotection.org ... See MoreSee Less

In an alarming development, vulnerable refugees along the Lebanese border with Syria are witnessing the demolition of make-shift shelters with “semi-permanent structures,” often nothing more than plastic sheeting strewn over cement foundations or partial walls. Affected children in Arsal are falling ill from the resulting heat exposure and water pollution by demolition debris.
