Urgent Winter Wishlist



Every day, homes are torn apart by disaster, conflict and climate catastrophe. Right now, this is the reality for thousands of people. For people who have lost everything, items others take for granted such as warm clothes and blankets, become a necessity.

ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and aid essentials at times of disaster and conflict. Help us be there for people who have lost everything by donating today.

Facing winter in a Syrian camp

Two year old Ftim, featured in our banner image, lives in a displacement camp with her siblings Rahma (aged 3) and Marwa (also aged 2), as well as her father. He was asked about the difficulties of raising a family in the camp, and how ShelterBox’s aid has helped.

He said, “It is difficult to be a father in a camp because the conditions are difficult and you have to provide for the needs of the children. The children loved the new clothes and colours, especially the jacket. I am very happy that they got winter clothes, I hope that my children will have a better future and get what they need.”

For children in Syrian displacement camps, winter clothes and jackets help them stay warm in the bitterly cold temperatures. It also allows them to play outside, bringing some joy and normality to a childhood disrupted by conflict.

A donation today can help ShelterBox be there for other families like Ftim’s and bring some happiness to people who have lost everything through conflict or disaster.
