Keep Syrian Children Warm this Winter

by SIVIL HIMAYE DERNEGI

Summary

Support our efforts to provide warm clothes and blankets to the most vulnerable children in Syrian IDP camps near the borders with Turkey. Since the beginning of the current crisis in Syria, internally displaced people (IDPs) have expressed concern about winter. Many lack warm clothes and blankets living in tent camps that are ill-prepared for cold weather. More than 200,000 IDPs living in tent camps 60% of them are children in need for assistance this winter.

Challenge

Children are the ones who are affected most from the on-going crisis in Syria. Winter in Syria is very harsh, the low temperatures and snow really make it tough for children living in tent camps. The most vulnerable families living in tents in the camps are unable to afford adequate warm clothes , blankets and heating inputs during winter months.

Solution

This project is part of our Winterization Assistance Program that aims to bring warmth to children, women and the elderly in IDP camps North of Syria. With this project we seek to meet the needs of the most vulnerable children in harsh winter and maintain a warm and healthy life in the IDP camps.

Long-Term Impact

The project goal is to provide life saving and life sustaining support to vulnerable children who are in high risk of exposure to disease and sickness during the harsh winter months in IDP tent camps. If we reached our goal US$5,000 with your support , an estimate of 200 children will be protected and enabled to cope with the harsh winter this season
