Syrian Children Struggle to Survive a Freezing Winter
Violence in Syria has forced millions of children to flee their homes, often with just the clothes on their backs. Now winter is here.
Children are facing freezing temperatures with no way of keeping warm. Without blankets and warm clothes, children will struggle to survive the bitter cold. They urgently need your help.
For children living in flimsy tents and bombed out buildings without blankets or warm clothes, this winter will be devastating. There’s not a minute to lose. Hypothermia and respiratory illnesses like pneumonia are a real threat to the most vulnerable children.
With no proper heating, shelter, winter clothes and protection from the bitter cold weather, parents face a constant battle to keep their children warm, dry and alive. Without blankets and good quality winter clothes to keep them warm, many children will struggle to survive this winter and some could even die.
