Our Core Values
SARD (Sosyal Araştırma ve Rehabilite Derneği) is an independent and non-political humanitarian non-governmental organisation (NGO) established in 2013 to provide life-saving, resilience-building, and community-building humanitarian assistance to Syrians affected by the conflict. We are committed to a community-based and people-centred approach that reaches the most vulnerable, regardless of denomination, race, creed, age, or gender.
We are based in Mersin, Turkey, and have teams across Syria working in areas including shelter, early recovery, protection, food security and non-food items, and livelihoods. At the heart of our work are the children, women and men we are privileged to help. Together, we are rebuilding lives and communities destroyed by the conflict.
We rehabilitate the most vulnerable communities in Syria by providing emergency relief, shelter assistance, and livelihood support.
We aspire to impartially reduce the suffering and improve the lives of internally displaced persons and vulnerable communities in Syria.
