There are an estimated 7 to 8 million Syrians displaced inside Syria without proper shelter for them to embrace the upcoming winter. Winter in Syria can be very harsh and include prolonged periods of snow and temperatures below zero. Out of the 7 million men, women, boys and girls who are estimated to be internally displaced, many have left without adequate clothing and have to stay in make-shift shelters, which leaves them extremely vulnerable to rain, snow and freezing temperatures.
For this year winter campaign, we are determined to increase the number of people who would benefit from it.
Taking into account that procurement, shipment and delivery to the end user may take up to two months, we urgently seek funding to ensure that the specified relief will be available before the cold season hits.
For the annual Syria Care Winter Aid Campaign, we provide winterization items such as blankets and winter clothing for approximately 10,000 people including children. One child set includes a winter hat, gloves, winter jacket, winter pants, socks and a pair of wellington boots.
