This is an urgent appeal for these displaced people, living in Turkey in the most basic conditions, without refugee status.

Turkey's resources are stretched beyond capacity and are unable to cope with any more refugees, but they still keep coming. 250 Christian families recently arrive from Iraq at place called Tokat and another 100 Muslim families arrived an area called Samsun. Turkey can't manage the refugees they already have, so new arrivals can't be registered as refugees and receive any of the benefits that are available. Unregistered refugees are called "displaced people" and are completely helpless.
