  1. About MSYD

 

The Association of Assistance, Solidarity and Support for Refugees and Asylum-Seekers (MSYD) was established as an independent non-governmental humanitarian aid organization in Istanbul in 2015 to identify the needs of individuals and communities adversely affected by natural disasters and human-made conflicts, and to improve the living conditions of different social segments among the affected populations.

 

Our Association has the vision of establishing a dignified and equal life for everyone by starting to build lives with the motto “share the kindness” for refugees and persons of concern, affected by natural and/or human-made disasters. MSYD acknowledges, protects, develops and represents the importance of the concept of solidarity in the field with the affected population, and is determined to always reflect the added value of any practice that is woven between all connotations of the concept of solidarity with affected population groups. MSYD also closely monitors current and possible trends at local, national and global level towards excluding girls, women and disabled people in certain positions. In this sense, MSYD attaches strategic importance to preventive, responsive and gender-based methods in activities carried out in line with the unmet needs of these population groups.

Our Association aims to equip its institutional structure to meet the emerging needs of refugees and persons of concern, to play a pro-active role in determining the needs of the groups we serve, to develop integrated and combined project approaches and to implement humanitarian aid projects, to evaluate the feedback from the communities we serve, and it has the mission of functionalizing it as an important impetus in the way it functions and service. In this context, the principles of non-discrimination, transparency, impartiality, accountability and gender equality are adopted as the founding principles of MSYD in the context of national legislation and international humanitarian aid standards. In this general context, it is planned to carry out activities within the framework of emergency action plans in order to meet the urgent and prioritized basic needs of the target groups immediately after the crisis developments, and then the implementation of projects in order to meet special and specific needs on the axis of reconstruction and rehabilitation works.

 MSYD pays attention to reflect its institutional technical expertise and significant experience in humanitarian aid to every layer of project implementation. MSYD, as a principle and value, produces durable solutions for different social groups (girls, women, youth, adults, disabled people, etc.). MSYD also determines its strategic plans and program specific activities to develop potential and alternative service approaches based on gender equality.

* As MSYD, we support the applications of qualified female candidates in this field.
