Our Background

In 2015, one picture changed it all for us: his red shirt and blue shorts hugging his body almost as though he was taking a casual nap on the beach. The image of three-year old Alan Kurdî ignited a whirlwind of emotions including sadness, anger, compassion, disgust, and most of all, an urgency to act.
So it started with a coffee, “what can we do?” After our initial conversation, we looked for ways to help. Our determination to make a difference led us to meet with many organizations.
Gazelle & Forough reached out to their community to form a task force, Project Turquoise, to bring the traditional essence of turquoise to the affected communities around the world. Since then, our group of volunteers have been able to raise funds and awareness and impace the lives of 100s of displaced individuals all over the world! 
The goal of reorganization is to respond to humanitarian crisis and provide aid to displaced families.
