The project addresses the pressing challenge of homelessness, hunger, and isolation that refugees and needy individuals endure during the winter. These barriers are formidable and can lead to suffering and despair among these vulnerable communities.


URDA's "Break the Ice" project offers a comprehensive solution by providing shelter, warm clothing, and essential resources to those in need, thereby making the winter season more bearable. It also fosters community and solidarity, bridging the gap between donors and beneficiaries, and uniting efforts to positively impact the lives of those affected by winter's challenges.

Long-Term Impact

Over the long term, "Break the Ice" seeks to create lasting warmth, safety, and hope for vulnerable populations during winter. By building bridges and fostering community and solidarity, this project aspires to not only alleviate immediate hardships but also contribute to systemic change, ensuring a more compassionate and supportive winter environment for years to come.
