In 2019, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) continued to provide support to a local organisation, the Citizens’ Assembly, which works with migrants and refugees in Turkey.   

The Citizens’ Assembly Nefes Centre provides support and advisory services in Istanbul for migrants and refugees who have suffered ill-treatment.  

As well as providing technical and financial support to local NGOs, we are engaging in efforts to renew our registration to operate directly.
