The organization is about 20 years old but for legal purposes they have to fly under the radar; so they are not an official NGO. They help migrants and refugees in Istanbul find food/shelter/ whatever they may need. If these refugees have any appointments with the UN they will provide a one way ticket for transportation. If there are any medical concerns they try to help the best they can or at least refer doctors. They can offer translation services and work with about 10 other churches who are also unofficial in Turkey.
