Help refugees survive this winter

Across Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Ukraine, refugees and displaced families are facing another brutal winter far from home.


Many will endure sub-zero temperatures, freezing winds and snow, stranded in derelict buildings, camps and informal settlements. The cold truth is, without support, many refugees will struggle to survive. 

Please donate today to help provide a family with lifesaving winter assistance, including warm clothes, thermal blankets and emergency cash payments to help them to stay safe and warm this winter.
