About Us

(From Şehir and Ramazan to Deniz Feneri…)

The DENIZ FENERI ASSOCIATION, is a humanitarian assistance and solidarity association, which has adopted it as a principle to work unceasingly until reaching the last person who is in need anywhere around the world.


This movement of goodness that started with a TV show titled “Şehir and Ramazan” (The City and Ramadan) in the Ramadan month of 1996 took the name of “Deniz Feneri” (lighthouse) upon the strong demand by those who wanted to help and to be helped, transforming into a weekly show, and subsequently an association was established with the same name in 1998.


Thanks to its tens of thousands of donors and volunteers, who have been with us since the first day, it delivered food, clothing, sheltering, health and monetary assistance to hundreds of thousands of families in Turkey and around the world, and still carries out this service in steadily increasing volumes. From the day of its establishment, our charity has been carrying out these activities based on a certain program, discipline, and corporate understanding, and crowned its efforts with an ISO 9001 Quality Certificate in 2002.


With the food, clothing, education, health, and sheltering projects it’s been launching, the guesthouses, soup kitchens, and clothing stores it’s been establishing, and the vocational programs it’s been conducting around Turkey and the world, it’s been offering an extensive help to those in need.


As a “Social Responsibility Leader”, Deniz Feneri act based on the principle of transmitting all aids in cash and kind to actual needers in the highest-quality and without making any kind of discrimination. Possessing an Aid Organisation Program (YOP) of its own design, whereby even the smallest details are recorded from the moment a donation is made until the moment the aid is delivered, our association was honoured with the Outstanding Service Award by TBMM (Turkish Grand National Assembly).


Having delivered assistance to more than 4 million people in Turkey and around the world in 22 years with more than 1 million donors and tens of thousands of volunteers, our charity operates in the status of an association which is allowed, as per the Cabinet Decision taken on 20.12.2004, to collect aid for the public benefit without obtaining the authorisation of the competent authority.
