Spread kindness this winter

For refugees and displaced families forced to flee their homes, this winter threatens to be harsher than ever.

They will have to face winter struggling to keep their families warm in tents or improvised shelters, while also facing the continued threat of COVID-19.

We need to act now, before it's too late. Your donation can help keep refugees and displaced families safe and warm this winter.
