Help Syrian Refugees Receive Emergency Aid

Give them shelter from the cold.
Give them shelter from the cold.

As a supporter of UNHCR's work in Syria, you’ve proven that you are a compassionate person. I know you’d help a child shivering from the cold.

So I am asking you for a generous year-end gift right away. You see, the violence in Syria escalated during the warm months of this past summer. People fled in terror from horrific dangers with little more than the clothes on their backs. And no one thought the crisis would go on for so long – so they only grabbed their children before they ran. 

But now, months later, winter has arrived. Next week in Jordan, the forecast is for freezing rain and low temperatures around 29° F – too cold for a child in summer clothes.

Some 500,000 Syrians have fled their homeland. Mostdepend on the generosity of others in this difficult time – and we depend on you to ensure they receive the warmth they so urgently need.  

You’re an important supporter, and now we ask for your extra generosity. With your help, we’ll be able to provide:

  • Warm blankets to bundle up children who don’t understand why they can’t sleep in their own beds
  • Cooking and heating stoves with fuel to produce warmth
  • Sturdy shelters to protect a family from the harsh winter cold

Will you help by making a generous contribution now?
