“It’s been three years since ACERO started doing this awesome work in Turkey. It’s generosity is endless and I can’t find a good way to thank it enough. Recently, ACERO provided aid to the refugees in Turkey for ( 61 ) families. Again, no words can describe the joy in our hearts to the magnificent job that ACERO is doing for the people. I want to thank Barnabas Fund, and also our brothers and sisters at ACCM Assyrian Christian Compassion Ministry of San Jose, in California who have always helped and assisted us in these difficult times our people are going through.”

These are the words of our representative on the ground in Turkey, Mr Danny Lucas.

Danny and his team have traveled across the country to visit and distribute aid to displaced persons currently in Turkey. They have reached people in the following cities / towns:

Istanbul, Tokat, Duzce, Yozgat, Kirsehir, Kirikalle, Afyon, Cankiri, Samsun, Mardin, Belecik and Nigde.

The need in Turkey is great; displaced people are spread across this huge country, unable to work and facing bitter winters with very expensive utility bills. Many of them also suffer from terminal illnesses such as cancer and diabetes and are in desperate need of medication. We are therefore constantly working to ensure no one is left without help.

We take this opportunity to thank Danny for his work in reaching out to all these people. We also thanks Mr Senhareeb Rasho who made the distributions in the city of Tokat where there is a high concentration of families residing. We thank them sincerely for giving their time and commitment as invaluable members of our ACERO family.
