We have made several visits to the old town in Antakya, where several thousand

Syrian refugees live, some of whom we meet after Friday Prayers.



It was a cold, wet week in January but we were met with nothing but kindness. The food was delicious!

The photo shows the bakery, beside a mosque where poor people (Turkish and Syrian) come for bread each Friday.

The bread-giving is a spontaneous expression of solidarity and caring. It is being extended with a little extra money from one of our local volunteers.




We were able to provide a little help to several households (Turkish and Syrian)

Food Baskets, Books in Turkish & Arabic for children, a few educational toys. All very modest.
