Urgent Support Call for Syrian Circassians


To Whom It May Concern,

We are writing you on behalf of IKKD Genc (Young Group in Istanbul Caucasus Cultural Association) which is a voluntary group under Istanbul Caucasus Cultural Association. We are a diasporic community who are known as Circassians or Cherkess –  North Caucasian who were forced to migrate from their homeland and faced with genocide in the course of the Russian conquest of the Caucasus in the 19th century, especially after theRussian–Circassian War of 1862.

We know that Circassia and Abkhazia are your member countries and we do appreciate your efforts for them. Studies regarding the population densities in Syria show that; there are 80.000-100.000 Circassian people living in Syria.

Regarding the war continiuing in Syria, these people are living in quite bad conditions and their lives are under serious risk.These Caucasian people are unbiased and exposed to cruelty form both sides of the war. Additionally, they can not get out of the city due to  bombardments and the operations done by Bashar Al-Assad’s adversaries. We can not contact with our relatives and we are so much worried about their lives. Because of those bad conditions, many people of Circassian origin need support.

We think that those people do really need our help because of these bad situations they have to face.  These support can be given in various ways such as financial support for meeting their priority needs for their return to their homeland; Caucasia.

We would be pleased very much if you can help us in this issue and inform us about the ways that you can support. We believe these people worth better conditions like every nation in the world.

Kind Regards,


(Istanbul Caucasus Cultural Association-IKKDYoung Group)
