The destructiveness of the impact of wars on man and nature is an incontrovertible fact. This devastating effect makes itself even more intense in winter conditions.
The war that has been going on in Syria since 2011 has caused many people to lose their lives, while also causing many people to lose their relatives and their homes. Families forced to leave their homes under bombardment and attacks seek refuge in other countries if they succeed. Families trapped in their own land are struggling to survive in tents and scattered campsites in difficult terrain and seasonal conditions.
In 2019, hundreds of thousands of people left their homes and began an immigration wave to regions close to the Turkish border due to the attacks on Idlib. Families who leave everything behind and hit the road have no place to get their heads around except for mosques and tents. The need for qualified shelter is vital for families who are warm in summer, cold in winter and unprotected against mud.
The Turkiye Diyanet Foundation, which has been supporting the Syrian people in many fields from education to charity services since the beginning of the war, aims to improve the living standards of war-torn families, especially orphans and disabled families, with its Goodness Residences project campaign launched with the theme of "One Goodness, One warm Home" for families struggling to survive in difficult conditions.
As part of the campaign, we have increased the size of our houses, which we previously built as 28 square meters, to 38 square meters. We ensure a comfortable life for war-torn families with our two-room, two-bedroom wellness units with a bathroom, toilet, kitchen, and courtyard, and reinforced concrete roof that is resistant to all weather conditions.
The expense of Goodness Residence has been determined as 19,750 TL until April 30, 2022.
Since foreign currency is spent in the residential area, the residence price may also change according to the changes in the exchange rate after the determined date.
14,673 residences have been donated to our Foundation by our esteemed charitable so far, 6,214 of these donated residences have been completed and 2,900 of them are still under construction. 5,559 houses are planned to be built and land allocation is expected from local authorities. Once the land allocations are completed, the construction of these residential units will be completed quickly.
