MSWS is an organisation initiated in 2016 by the Malaysian students who currently studying in Turkey to stand along with the Syrian refugees in Turkey. In an effort to encourage students and others to contribute to the society particularly to the Syrian refugees, at the same time to ponder on the depth meaning of Ramadhan, MSWS in conjunction with TIAFI have proposed to organise the project called “Projek Kurma” (the Dates Project) with the Syrian refugees. This project is the extension of the previous recent project of MSWS which is “Misi Selimut untuk Syria” (The Blanket for Syrian Mission).
