Re: Warm winter clothing appeal.

Good question Hilsjw, and one I can't answer. I don't give money for that reason, but I try to help in other ways - knitting hats, buying underwear and socks, organising good used items etc. Whenever I saw groups of refugees being held in front of the police station in Datca I bought drinks and snacks and gave it to the women and children.

Many years ago I was offered a highly paid job, which I turned down - it was with a charity, and I felt very uneasy taking money donated to help others. Some of the chief executives of the biggest charities earn huge salaries, for running what are effectively large scale businesses.

2 years ago when I was looking for an organisation that could deliver our hats to the refugee camps, I hit a brick wall with all the major charity/aid organisations working in Turkey. Not one of them was interested, all of them would only accept cash.

I worked with Cansuyu, a small Turkish charity, successfully, and am now working with The Worldwide Tribe, an Australian organisation - our first boxes, at least 15, will be sent early next week, and warm clothes distributed immediately. For me, practical help where it's needed is better than a cash donation, and I will continue to do this. Please contact me if you want to help.
