Christmas Gifts For Syrian Children

With the country still traumatised by bloodshed, there will be no Christmas celebrations in Syria for yet another year.
At this time of the year, Damascus streets used to be filled with Christmas trees and decorations, and not only in Christian neighbourhoods but across the city. Not anymore!

Help 'LILY' bring a little Christmas cheer to the Syrian children living in refugee camps in Turkey. We will be making up Christmas presents containing a hat, scarf, gloves, socks, toy and sweets. If you'd like to let these children know that somebody cares and that they are not forgotten by sending a gift of hope, please send your donations of toys, sweets etc to:
LILY C/O Dianne Jones
Türkmen Mahlesi
Sürücü Sokak
Yildrim Apart 11/2

Mark the parcels - 'Small packet, for charity, No commercial value'
and keep weight to 2 kg (4.4 pounds) or under. On the customs declaration please keep value to  a minimum amount.
or to make it easier we can purchase a gift for you, just click on the donate button below and enter the amount you would like to donate and we will purchase gifts on your behalf and make sure they are delivered to the children on Christmas day.
