We work with the local community to help the children of the local community!
All money raised goes to help the children and schools in the Fethiye area. This stretches from Kumluova on the Saklikent side of Mugla to Gocek; from Fethiye itself to bare rocky villages in the mountains.
School needs vary considerably and every school is taken on its own merits. In some schools extra classroom furniture may be needed, or science materials. Books are always needed as are writing and drawing materials. Educational toys are a must, and puppet theatres are particularly requested in nursery classes. Playgrounds, sports equipment and musical instruments are other popular requests. As are desktop computers, printers and photocopiers. The list is endless and is constantly changing.
Providing playgrounds for village schools
Many schools ask for help with purchasing classroom furniture, books and other educational materials
FIG also makes appeals to help children with serious medical conditions and help the families to meet the costs of providing treatment and other special needs. FIG provided the funds and helped to set up a special room at the Devlet Hospital for children with Thalessemia
We also help out in many other ways that make a difference in the lives of some of the needier families in the area by:
- providing transport to local hospital appointments
- assisting with transport to other hospitals where required
- providing wheelchairs
- helping families in need in emergency situations
