OUR

STORY

It all started in 2014. Upon witnessing the violent situation in Syria and the growing number of displaced people due to war, a group of Brazilians decided to act. Together, they formed the first volunteer team of mixed professions and left for Turkey, the nation with the highest intake of refugees worldwide. Their intention was to make a difference in the lives of refugees.

When the team arrived in Turkey, they were shocked by

the overwhelming needs of the refugees. They started gathering data to find the best strategies to provide for

those who had lost everything during the war.

The team’s first decision was to send groups that could travel

to Turkey twice a year for 15 days at a time. Teams of doctors, nurses, psychologists, dentists and education professio-

nals assembled and started travelling regularly. Each

year, the number of volunteers increased and

between January 2014 and January 2018, more than

100 volunteers passed through Turkey and Greece.

In January 2018, four Brazilian volunteers from the

original team noticed the need for longer term pro-

jects to work alongside the short-term trips and so

moved to Turkey to open a center for refugees in

Istanbul. They offer the following services to

refugees:

 

- English School
- Mathematics School

- School of Arts

- Jiu-Jitsu classes

- Professional training courses.

- Borders of Love currently relies on 20 long-term volunteers - living in Turkey who provide these services.
