Winter Appeal


Despite the freezing temperatures, each winter we have battled to deliver essential aid to families who have been left vulnerable to Syria’s subzero temperatures. Camps are now prone to flooding, and families living in improvised shelters are telling us that rain water is starting to leak into the tents making any clothing or blankets they have wet.

Aliya* was forced to leave her home in Aleppo with her mother and younger brother. Arriving in Idlib almost two years ago, this is not the first winter they will experience in these harsh conditions.

“I am scared of this winter, last year the cold made me so ill. We live in a tent and the ground gets very wet at night so I wake up so cold. No matter how many clothes I wear, they get wet.”

By donating to our winter appeal, you will be helping us distribute more fuel and blankets and help children like Aliya and her family keep warm and safe in these freezing temperatures.

Winter only comes once a year, so lets get together and help these families feel as warm as we do this winter.

Please don’t let them freeze and make a urgent donation to our Winter Crisis
