Location: Batman, Turkey
Challenge: Children in these camps are living in tents with just the clothes they fled with and the temperatures getting as low as 20-30 degrees Farenheit at night. As the winter months get colder and colder, they need warm clothing and blankets for survival.
Purpose: Project Batman provides warmth to refugee children living in the camps in Batman, Turkey. Our initial goal was to provide one set of coat, boots, gloves, scarf, hat, and socks to each of the 280 children in the camp. One set cost $25. We were able to raise the money in less than a week and all the children have received their winter gear. (Photos to the left are of the children with their new winter gear!) Now we are working to send these children blankets for $5 a blanket.
