Winter Wonderland: Emergency Appeal

...............................................................................................................

For those men, women and children driven from their homes by conflict or hunger, the winter is anything but a wonderland. It is for many a time of misery and indignity, where simply getting through the day is a triumph. 

 

Many will be housed in tents situated in remote and inhospitable areas, where winter’s bone is most keenly felt, and snow, sleet, and rain offer no respite to people who have already suffered greatly. Often lacking even the most basic items, a distribution of nutritious food, warm clothes, heaters, and fuel for stoves can be a life saver - keeping immune systems strong, and helping to stave off winter illnesses. Particularly COVID-19. 

 

Why Your Help Is Needed?

In Jordan and Lebanon there are in excess of 1.6 million refugees, Iraq has some 3 million internally displaced Iraqis living in temporary shelters, and a further quarter-of-a-million Syrian refugees, and in Yemen over 3 million are internally displaced (IDPs), with 80% of the population requiring humanitarian assistance.

 

Where Your Help Is Needed? 

Our 2020 Winter Crisis Appeal is a targeted response that is aimed at not simply giving refugees and internally displaced people from Yemen, Syria and Iraq more dignified lives, but life itself. For they exist on society’s fringe’s getting little but crumbs from the table. If that. As such they are at greatest risk from sickness and death.
