11-year-old Salma has worries that no child should: whilst she sleeps each night, she worries her younger sister will not be alive in the morning.
As heavy rain and snow hit Syria and its surrounding areas, thousands of families are in a similar position, wondering if their children will make it through the night. The devastating storms have also caused roads to close, isolating residents and leaving them unable to purchase food or medicine.
The United Nations’ refugee agency says at least 11,000 people have been severely affected by the weather in Lebanon, and more than 15 camps have completely flooded. One settlement in the border town of Arsal has been buried in snow, forcing its inhabitants to burn clothes to keep warm.
We are on the ground delivering aid to the worst affected areas. Our team in Syria and Lebanon are working hard delivering blankets, food, and fuel where there has been severe rainfall and snow. Help ensure the most vulnerable families are able to stay warm in these awful conditions.
