Urgent Winter Warmth Appeal

After fleeing unspeakable violence, families in Syria face a new danger.

Often arriving in emergency camps with nothing but the clothes on their back, they are totally unprotected from the harsh winter temperatures. Warm blankets could make all the difference.

A complete winter warmth bundle has everything a large family needs to survive the cold – from mattresses to a kitchen set for cooking warm food. It also includes insulated baby sleepsuits, children’s thermal underwear, and children’s jeans and jumpers.

Please don’t wait. Give a winter warmth bundle today.

How your gift helps

You are giving more than just a blanket, a coat or a tarpaulin roof above a family’s head. 

You could be giving a family a warm night’s sleep amid the chaos and violence they have lived through.

A family like Umm’s, whose home had been destroyed by shelling in Syria.

Soon after they arrived at the emergency camp where we first met them, Umm gave birth to twin boys. For Umm, there was immense joy that her babies were born healthily. But she was worried that winter was coming.

‘I’m afraid of the cold. I’m afraid for my children.’  

By making a donation today, you could keep families like Umm’s warm this winter.

Our emergency aid to Syria during the winter months can be lifesaving for families whose winter might not be as cosy as ours. But delivering it can also be dangerous. It needs careful planning, brave teams and your generous support. 

Our mission is to provide emergency shelter to families who have lost their homes to disaster, enabling them to rebuild their lives.

Give a gift today and we will put it to work wherever it is needed most. Protecting families from the chilling temperatures in emergency camps in Syria, flooding in Bangladesh, or conflict in Cameroon.

Our work in Syria

We’re providing shelter for families who have been forced to leave their homes due to the conflict in Syria.

Syria faces freezing temperatures in the winter, so our aid is designed to reduce their vulnerablity to weather and environmental extremes.

When families are far from home, and traumatised from their experiences, having a safe place to call home is invaluable. Our aim is to help vulnerable people who are not being reached by other humanitarian organisations.
