Winter is here and Syrian children are in danger
Right now, more than 8 million Syrian children are in danger. Many have lost their homes, their schools and even their families. They face unspeakable violence and a lack of food, health care and clean water.
Now Syria’s children face another threat – the deadly cold winter.
Frightened children face freezing temperatures with no way of keeping warm. Without access to shelter, blankets or warm clothes, many children will struggle to survive. They’re cold, they’re vulnerable and they urgently need your help.
We must do whatever we can to protect Syria’s children.
How will my donation help children?
Unicef is one of the few organisations working inside Syria, as well as providing life-saving support for refugee families in surrounding countries including Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt.
With your help this winter, we plan to reach over a million children and families with thermal blankets and winter clothing kits containing hats, gloves, scarves, shoes and socks. We will also heat classrooms and play spaces and continue to provide life-saving food, clean water and medicine to protect the most vulnerable children.
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 whose lives are in danger.
Please donate today and help Syria’s children now.
Donating by phone
If you’re in the UK and would prefer to make a donation to our Syria appeal by phone, you can call our dedicated donation line: 0300 330 5699.
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.
