When I visited the school which Lucas and Jozi were helping to take care of in Turkey, I noticed how everything is done with love. The results are visible and their team always values each student’s growth.


Nowadays, I am in partnership with them: I sell necklaces and all the proceeds go to Borders of Love. In return, they keep me updated and it’s a privilege to be able to help the Syrian and Turkish people in this way.


I’m so grateful to have discovered this project.

I know the directors and the work of Borders of Love well.


For me, they are great examples of what it means to work with refugees. As we are experiencing one of the biggest waves of refugees the world has ever seen, we need people who are ready to meet the urgent needs and care for all involved.


I recommend that you get involved and support this NGO that has already done so much to help those who have had to flee their homes because of war.

I had the opportunity to work with the refugees in Turkey for 5 years. During my final year I served as the Financial and Human Resources coordinator for the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders (MSF). It was in this context that I had the opportunity to get to know the work developed by Lucas and his team.


I still remember the early days, when the project was still a dream. I have seen this dream become reality, while the team have worked on every detail of this project with so much love and professionalism. Turkey has become a home to so many refugees. Much help is needed in many areas and I’m happy that Borders of Love works hard to meet those needs.

I got to know this social project that works with vulnerable people when I was with Lucas and Jozi in Turkey. I saw first-hand how they, together with the volunteers, worked with relentless dedication, love and passion day in, day out. I have seen the impact of this project on the lives of the people during my outreach with them in Turkey and Greece and even now I can see the results through their updates on social media and their newsletters. I sincerely recommend this project and would urge anyone to be a part of the development.

We had the memorable opportunity of being in Istanbul, Turkey, with Lucas and his family, and learning about their Syrian refugee children project first-hand. We witnessed the diligence and zeal with which Lucas and his wife perform every task and we were deeply touched by what they are building, giving us new meaning to our worldview. It is clear that we are facing the biggest refugee crisis in history, and in the midst of this hardships faced by children, this project is bringing enormous encouragement.


Working like this is an inspiration and challenge for the world today, aiming to bring "life" and joy to children without hope. I challenge you to learn more about this formidable project, which has transformed the reality of many little ones

There are no boundaries for love and for those who decide to love. Borders of Love is a project born in the heart of Lucas and Josi, who left everything they had in Brazil to, together with their children, take care of refugee and undocumented children in Istanbul, Turkey. I am a witness of their seriousness, dedication, engagement and commitment to the school they coordinate in Turkey, which, based on educational projects, aims to ensure the dignity of all children, regardless of their nationality.
