After escaping life-threatening violence, refugee parents want their children to have a safe place to sleep, eat, study and play. That’s what your generosity can provide. Not just shelter — but a home, a sense of normalcy and regained dignity.
You can provide an emergency rescue kit to a thirsty, hungry and cold refugee. Simple items — a towel, thermal blanket, bottled water, an energy bar, dry clothing and shoes — are comforting lifelines during a time of great need.
Syrian refugee Amira, with her daughter Amani, keeps warm in their shelter in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, where winter temperatures frequently plummet below freezing. In addition to sleeping mats and warm blankets, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, provided materials for the family’s shelter and cash assistance for food, heating fuel and other necessities.
These children are among the millions of Syrians who’ve been forced to flee their homes but still are trapped inside their country, where war has raged since 2011. Generous Americans enable UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to help vulnerable families prepare for cold days ahead by delivering blankets and other relief items before winter’s arrival.
Thanks to generous donor support, this Syrian refugee family has found safety in Greece, where they are staying in prefabricated structures in Kara Tepe, a UNHCR-supported housing site on the island of Lesvos. Sleeping mats and blankets keep them warm and comfortable.
