Leave no one behind this winter

“No Muslim clothes a Muslim with a garment, except that he is under the protection of Allah as long as a shred from it remains upon him.” (Tirmidhi)

Winter Family Emergency Kit - From just €100, you can share your warmth with a family left out in the cold this winter. We’re providing heaters, blankets, mattresses, warm clothing, and waterproof sheeting to families across 10 countries.

For €150, you can donate a winter emergency kit to where most needed.

82.4 million people are out in the cold this winter

For the world’s most vulnerable people, winter is not just a cold season. It is a deadly one. After enduring unspeakable horrors like war, violence, displacement, hunger, malnutrition, untreated disease, abuse and marginalisation, winter can be the final nail in the coffin.

This winter, as thousands of families struggle to stay warm in tents and makeshift shelters, we will not turn our backs. As malnourished children brace their weak bodies against the cold, we will not turn to look away. Although millions are displaced - the highest figure on record. And although millions are living below the poverty line in desperate need, we will do everything we can to ensure no one is left behind.

Together we can make sure 90,000 people across 10 countries survive winter by supporting them with our emergency winter kits while helping them to build resilience with our long-term winter solutions. Millions of lives are on the line right now, so please don’t turn away. Give your warmth. If everyone were to help someone this winter, no one would get left behind.

Thank you for remembering them

You supported over 70,000 people last winter

For 30 years, thanks to your support, we have been there for human beings in desperate need during the winter months. Last winter alone, as biting winds, snowstorms, and sub-zero temperatures battered camps and flimsy shelters, you provided 40,998 people across nine countries with emergency aid, including nourishing food, warm winter clothing, shelter reinforcements and heating, while supporting our long-term winter solutions, including water, healthcare, permanent housing and farming and support for street children and orphans.

Winter kills.
