Come on board one of our international deployments and be at the forefront of serving the poor and needy! SKT Welfare carry out regular international deployments to our programmes in Turkey, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Volunteers are invited to fundraise a minimum of £2,000, which will be used to purchase food parcels and other items which are distributed to those most in need.
SKT Welfare takes groups of volunteers to Turkey to work with Syrian refugees, delivering food packs to homes, schools and orphan care facilities. This once in a lifetime experience allows you to spend time with our beneficiaries and see, first-hand, the real, tangible difference that humanitarian aid delivery can make, and understand the challenges faced by our Syrian brothers and sisters.
All our Turkey Deployment volunteers are required to raise a set amount of funds before traveling, which enables you to see your fundraising efforts transform into essential aid. There’s nothing more rewarding than joining one of our Deployment teams. Some people travel to see the difference, but this is your chance to be the difference!
“From the very first pound I raised of my target, right down to the last parcel I delivered to a family in need, the Turkey Deployment was definitely an emotional and humbling experience. The days I spent in Reyhanli, Turkey, helped me to understand that continuous acts of charity are paramount to ensure that we mean it when we say: love for your brother what you love for yourself.” Sofia, Turkey Deployment volunteer
SKT Welfare also carry out volunteer deployment programmes in Pakistan to help vulnerable communities.
First, we fly out as a team to Multan where we spend the first three days packing food parcels, which can take between six to eight hours a day. Each parcel contains a substantial amount of nutritious food, weighing approximately 30 kg and comprising essentials like rice, oil, and pasta.
After the third day, we begin distributing the food parcels and we also get the opportunity to work with our medical experts to assist them at our eye health camps. Altogether, we will distribute around 3,000 food parcels and carry out around 1,500 eye tests during your stay.
Our Pakistan deployment enables you to see, first-hand, the real, tangible difference that humanitarian aid delivery can make, while our experienced teams on the ground will provide you with all the support and guidance you need, every step of the way.
Joining our team of volunteers on our Bangladesh Deployment mission is a life-changing experience, enabling you to truly understand the issues faced by refugees forcibly displaced from their homes in Myanmar.
After arriving in Bangladesh, we spend the first day acclimatising to our new environment. On day 2 we go to the Cox’s Bazaar station post where we are told which camp to distribute to. There are about 24 camps in total and we will drive to the camp that is most in need of aid, distributing parcels according to military guidelines. We spend the next five days distributing vital aid among Rohingya refugees.
Our Bangladesh deployment enables you to spend time with our beneficiaries and see, first-hand, the real, tangible difference that humanitarian aid delivery can make, while our experienced teams on the ground will provide you with all the support and guidance you need, every step of the way.
All our Bangladesh Deployment volunteers are required to raise a set amount of funds before traveling, which enables you to see your fundraising efforts transform into essential aid. Get ready for a life-changing experience that enables you to be the difference to those in desperate need.
