WHAT WE DO
Atheist Refugee Assistance Program: Helping Non-Believing Asylum Seekers in Turkey Rebuild Their Lives
Turkey is home to the largest number of refugees on the planet, including many non-believing asylum seekers who have fled persecution due to their lack of belief in Islam. Ateizm Dernegi, a small NGO in Turkey, has launched the Atheist Refugee Assistance Program to assist non-Turkish non-believing refugees with legal aid, finding suitable accommodation and job opportunities, and providing guidance on navigating the application process for various allowances, grants, and scholarships. Despite the challenges, there are like-minded Turkish non-believers, open-minded secularists, and non-religious minorities who are willing to help asylum seekers and refugees in Turkey
