As winter bites,
Syrian children need your help more than ever.
The Syria conflict is nearing the four-year mark, UNICEF estimates that at least 7 million internally displaced and refugee children are in desperate need of assistance.
Many continue to live in unfinished buildings and inadequate shelters that expose them to sub-zero temperatures, heavy snow and strong winds.
Please donate today. Help bring warm clothing and blankets to protect Syrian children this winter - children like Hussien.
Hussien, 3, sleeps in the Al Andalus shelter. He is the youngest child in his family, which was evacuated from the Old City of Homs because it was no longer safe. UNICEF has provided warm clothing, blankets and recreational kits for children at the shelter.
Amidst the harshest conditions of the winter so far, UNICEF has delivered warm clothing, blankets, heating supplies, cash and vouchers to more than 900,000 children in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. But we urgently need to reach more children who need us.
Your donation today could help provide much needed winter clothing.
“By the end of 2015, the lives of over 8.6 million children across the region will have been torn apart by violence and forced displacement".
Maria Calivis, UNICEF Regional Director (Middle East and North Africa)
In 2014, thanks to donations, UNICEF provided winter clothing for 840,000 children and supported polio vaccinations for over 2.8 million children in Syria as part of a region-wide campaign reaching 28 million children. We also provided school lessons and psychological support to tens of thousands of children.
PLEASE DONATE NOW. Help us reach more Syrian children caught in the crisis and prevent a whole generation of children being lost to conflict.
