Winter Emergency Appeal
Winter is a nightmare for most people suffering around the world. Vulnerable families that are displaced and suffering need our help now more than ever.
79.5 million people need aid this winter. After months of suffering most are now set for freezing temperatures without adequate shelter, warm clothing, fuel, and little to no food.
Our Winter Emergency Appeal is needed now more than ever.
€120 can provide a family with warm blankets, clothes, heating, and fuel.
When winter is fatal, we need to act
2020 has been a hard year for most, given the unprecedented times we are living through, survival has been on all our minds. As we learned to adjust to a life of uncertainty, lockdown, and fear, we understood the value of family and being there for each other.
Through these challenges and tests, we had an opportunity to experience what 79.5 million around the world live through every day long before the Covid-19 pandemic became the new normal.
After enduring conflict, disaster, persecution, poverty, and the threat of COVID-19, displaced families around the world must now endure an unbearable season with no place to call home.
In Gaza, 2 million Palestinians are about to experience their harshest winter yet.
In Lebanon, 1.5 million Syrian refugees need our support. After the deadly explosion in Beirut earlier this year and the aftermath of Covid-19, their situation is getting worse each day.
In Syria, 6.1 million people are at risk.
In Somalia 2.1 million people are hungry.
In Yemen, the world’s worst humanitarian crisis 24 million people are relying on humanitarian aid.

“Whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongst the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove grief from him amongst the sorrows of the Day of Resurrection…Whoever covers a Muslim, Allah will cover him in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is in aid of the servant so long as the servant is in aid of his brother.”(Muslim)
