Get a LOVE Tee-Shirt and help raise funds for destitute refugees

At a time when the world faces many challenges; when rhetoric of hate and division has found itself centre stage; we believe sharing this simple message has never been more vital.

We all have a choice. To be motivated by fear and animosity, to build walls and turn our backs on the world. Or to nurture the hopeful; to recognise our common future. To choose love. The world can feel broken, but everywhere these cracks are letting in light.

We’re under no illusions. We know we face some huge challenges. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned as charity, and as a community, it’s that we can all play a part in creating the world we want to see. And choosing love seems like a pretty good place to start.

So join us. Spread this message. Grab one of our iconic t-shirts, designed by Katharine Hamnett. It’ll raise funds to support our incredible family of partner projects and help broadcast this message of hope and unity.

Click on Love.


Appeal for The Tiafi Community Centre - Physiotherapy for Syrian children

The Tiafi Community Centre has about 30 children receiving treatment on a weekly basis - all Syrian refugees. In Turkey, there is no system where these children can access much needed treatment; they just do not fit into the system. Some of these children have deformities - scoliosis, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis - while many others are victims of bombings in Syria and have not to date received any form of physiotherapy. It is vital that these children receive treatment as soon as possible so that their condition does not deteriorate beyond the point of no return. There is a great need to raise money to buy "Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Equipment" for the physiotherapist working with these children. However, this type of equipment is expensive.

One of CRAG's volunteers was recently working at the Tiafi Centre and witnessed first hand the miracles that are happening daily to the children who receive treatment at this facility. Please read the 
November Timeline for his firsthand account.
