“Winter is very harsh here. Whenever it rains, our homes are flooded. And financially we are desperate. We are in debt to the grocery shop. Our children need healthcare, medicine, milk… but we can’t afford that.”
Radwan, Syrian refugee in Lebanon.
Thousands of Syrian and Iraqi families living in exile or displaced from their homes across the Middle East are preparing to face another bitterly cold winter away from home, where temperatures can fall as low as -12℃.
The rains have started early this year, meaning floods and damages for the many who live in fragile tents and unfinished buildings. While year after year, these poor families fall deeper and deeper into poverty and debt, struggling to afford the bare essentials to keep their children warm.
This winter, are you someone who would like to help?
