A staggering 768 million people worldwide live on less than $2 a day.
Displaced from their homes by violence and conflict, day-to-day living is an immense challenge.
Now, as temperatures continue to fall in many parts of the world, without adequate food, fuel and shelter, these vulnerable individuals are facing an ever greater struggle to survive.
$35 can provide blankets to keep a family warm this winter
$110 can provide fuel to keep a child warm this winter
$300 can provide one family with a winter survival pack, including food for one month
According to UNHCR, last year “refugees in camps saw damage to their shelters from high winds and flooding while thousands outside camps, half of whom live in substandard shelters, suffered through bitterly cold winter nights.” For displaced families and communities, already vulnerable and exposed to the elements, the freezing temperatures add another battle they have to fight to survive.
Today, you can share their warmth with thousands of people facing some of the harshest conditions we’ll see all year by helping us deliver items like blankets, mattresses, winter clothes and boots, stoves and other heating devices to those who desperately need them.
