Help protect a Syrian child from the cold this winter

Close to six million children have now been affected by the conflict in Syria. They've lost everything - family, friends and homes. And now they're facing a new threat: winter is here. Syria's children, already weakened by the crisis, desperately need warm clothes and blankets to protect them from the cold. They need our help to protect them from deadly diseases like pneumonia and keep them alive this winter.

UNICEF is working around the clock in Syria and the surrounding countries to provide children with warm blankets, clothing and medical care. But our resources are at breaking point. We desperately need more funding to ensure that we can reach every child in the region that needs us.

Your gift could help buy a child a warm blanket and other winter supplies. Please donate now.

Funds raised for this appeal will support children affected by the Syrian conflict. If the funds raised exceed UNICEF's funding requirement for this appeal, your gift will go to our Children's Emergency Fund.
