Since its launch, Orient for Human Relief has always attempted to be a non-profit service providing foundation in order to serve the Syrians and offer them different kinds of their basic needs including humanitarian and relief work services, for those inside Syria and the refugees in neighboring countries, especially Turkey.

Orient`s tailoring workshop –which was opened about 7 months ago- is a vital part of the foundation which provides Syrians in Reyhanli with a significantly high number of employment opportunities. Besides, it provides both Orient Foundation and Refugees Camps with necessary items .

High Performance And Free Services

One major difference that distinguishes Orient`s tailoring workshop from other ones is that the former provides everything for free. According to the head of the tailoring workshop, all products are granted for free. As for the workshop`s administration, the head of the workshop says " we have a certain hierarchy at the workshop: There is an executive manager, a production manager, a sub-section manager and an accountant, meaning that the workshop is completely independent from the foundation in terms of management. Besides, each production phase –from the sewing and designing up to the packing – has a supervisor which means there is no room for mistakes .

Work Opportunities for Syrian Women

The workshop employs more than 50 women workers including the managing staff, who belong to different areas from Syria. The number of the employees was determined based on the number of the sewing machines.

The workshop manager says that " We do have all different kinds of sewing and engraving machines, and I do believe that the size of our productivity is quite good. I do wish to expand the size of our work and productivity, but in fact, there must be a fully-detailed study for such big move .God`s will, we will be expanding very soon" .

Our Production Covers All Our Needs

In fact, we cannot say that there is a fixed rate of productivity for the workshop, because our productive capacity is not based on a limited number of sewed pieces. The workshop`s manager justifies that by saying " We are working on more than one production-line; we are producing the uniforms for Orient`s School and Hospital, alike. We are producing about 100 pieces a day, which means more than 2500 pieces a month; All of our products serve the various needs of Orient`s foundations. i.e. Orient`s workshop covers the needs of Orient`s other foundations" .

Our Products Are for Free

The products of the workshop do cover the various needs of Orient`s other foundations and their different activities. The workshop`s executive manager says that " We are producing more than 1700 school uniforms for Orient`s School to provide our students with free uniforms and clothing . sometimes, we produce different kinds of clothing for the Syrian children at the camps along with special baby- set for the newly born babies at Orient`s hospitals inside Syria. All products are mainly there to meet the many needs of Orient`s foundations".

Covering The Costs of The Workshop

Orient for Human Relief entirely covers all costs and expenses of the tailoring workshop, such as raw materials, production items and even the salaries of the workers, knowing that the workshop has no financial income at all since Orient for Human Relief is a non-profit organization.

Aspiring To Self-Funding

Orient for Human Relief is seriously considering the idea of completely funding the tailoring workshop, where the workshop starts to find marketing channels for the products in order to be able to maintain self-funding. According to the executive manager of the workshop, " We are considering the idea of a gallery for our products where we can display and market them properly and that the profits will cover the costs of raw materials and will be made into incentives for talented workers, other than their salaries that are entirely paid by Orient for Human Relief" .
