DONATE NOW TO HELP SYRIAN CHILDREN THIS WINTER
HUFFPOST CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2017
HUFFPOST SUPPORTS UNICEF TO KEEP SYRIAN CHILDREN SAFE, WARM AND HAPPY
You only have one childhood. Can you imagine it being filled with fear and uncertainty?
Syria is one of the most dangerous places to be a child. After six years of war, over 8 million of Syria’s children have been driven from their homes. They have paid the heaviest price. Yet despite the horrors and suffering, there are remarkable stories of children determined to pursue their hopes and dreams.
Unicef is one of the few humanitarian organisations working inside Syria, as well as in the surrounding countries, providing long-term support to help children, young people and families rebuild their lives.
How will my donation help children?
This year alone, Unicef has reached more than 3.4 million people inside Syria with a full package of support in water and sanitation, healthcare, education and child protection. Over 300,000 children have had a safe place to learn, rest and play and 500,000 children in neighbouring countries have benefited from psychosocial care and support.
This winter, with your support, we can help more children be safe and warm. A single donation of £35 could help provide a full set of warm winter clothing for a child. Or each month, a regular donation of £5 could help provide a warm thermal blanket that could save a child’s life.
But we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child that needs us. We urgently need your support to help us reach more Syrian children this winter whose lives are in danger.
Please donate today.
For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go to children affected by the Syrian conflict. After that they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will also go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, helping children caught in wars and disasters around the world.
