Bodrum’da İnsanca Yaşam Derneği (Bodrum Humanity)
Turkey’s coastal touristic town on the Aegean Sea, Bodrum, is also a departure point widely used by refugees when crossing to Greece. Bodrum’da İnsanca Yaşam is an organization that has been working with socio-economically disadvantaged women and children, mainly with domestic migration backgrounds or Syrian refugees.
The organization has been running a community center to support the refugees by providing basic survival needs, health and legal services, and Turkish language classes. All activities are free and open to everyone as the organization wants to encourage peace-building and contribute to social cohesion.
