Syrian children need urgent help
Almost 8 years of relentless fighting has caused misery and suffering for Syrian children. They can’t escape the violence, not in schools, hospitals, playgrounds, parks or even their own homes. The Syria crisis is the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II. Over 2.5 million children are internally displaced and a further 2.8 million have had to flee to neighouring countries. Beyond the violence Syrian children now face another challenge as winter draws near. In the sub-zero temperatures and extreme cold, Syrian children will struggle to survive without assistance. You can donate to Syria now and help keep these children safe this Christmas. Your donation will help to provide basic essentials like warm winter clothes, thermal blankets, clean water, food and health care to help keep children warm and safe.
Our expert on the ground in Jordan tells us:
“Millions of children are facing an incredibly harsh winter this year without even the most basic supplies. Vulnerable refugee families have exhausted all their resources and are struggling to survive. Many people don’t realise that the region experiences very cold winters, which can include sub-zero temperatures, strong winds, snow and flooding”
