About Us

Letters of Love is a global youth-led initiative and a member of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' #WithRefugees Coalition. With a team of 25 with an average age of 22 across 11 countries, we aspire to make a difference to refugee crises, one smile at a time. Founded in 2015 after the gruelling Syrian War & Refugee crisis caught attention of global media and created international outrage, a team of 30 volunteers across 10 countries helped actualise an idea of spreading smiles across refugee children by sending them handwritten postcards for New Years.

Under the guidance of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees(UNHCR) - Gaziantep, Turkey, Letters of Love delivers New Year greetings to ten thousands of Syrian,Iraqi,Yazidi and other refugee communities' children across the camps and community centres in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon et al; raises awareness in classrooms, university students and corporate companies with our 'critical thinking' & 'empathy' oriented sensitisation modules developed by Letters of Love expert Curriculum Team; raises funds for the credible work the UNHCR undertakes at the onset of these humanitarian crises.
