First let us thank you for your letters of support and the dozens of offers of support to help the orphans and adopt children who are on the Turkish side of the border of Syria and Iraq. A few people have offered to gather clothes etc to send to Turkey. The best way is financial as we can buy the clothes, food and other supplies locally and have them there in just a day or two.
We are working out a way to get some local monasteries to set up temporary orphanages to be used also as a processing center, ready to move children to countries and families that are willing to adopt them. We are also going to hire local refugees willing to help us to distribute the clothes, food etc as well as care for the children while we organize their movement to a permanent status , hopefully with a family in Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. We also are working to find out what will be required to get the necessary paperwork to adopt the children as currently there is no documentation to prove the ages or the health of each child. In normal adoption procedures the details of the birth parents along with legalities can be taken care of but this is a unique situation with no international legal precedent. We need the Turkish government to provide us with the guidlines on how to proceed which hopefully will not take too long, pray that we can do it quickly.

Once we have the procedures in place we will then start to put pressure on various governments and large institutions to help.
We also need you to tell your pastors about the orphan issue in particular and use the video we posted on the previous article which you can again watch here and share with your pastor. Please make the greatest effort to get the Pastors to have an event to both pray and collect special love offering so we can help. At the moment WE ARE THE ONLY ORGANIZATION PROVIDING AID TO SAVE THESE CHILDREN.
All money sent by churches will be used to purchase food, clothing, blankets and basic cold/flu and other over the counter medicines. Within week we will have people on ground to distribute the aid. Over the next few months we will be organizing on how we can move hundreds of orphans to other countries and we will keep up up to date, especially for those that are interested in adopting children.
We estimate to help and save all these orphans will cost over 20 million dollars. With your help and those of our many partners nationally and internationally we will save all these children.
