Human Appeal has been providing winter emergency relief for over 27 years, helping poverty, conflict and disaster-affected communities to get through winter.
Displacement levels today are at an all-time high. Every two seconds, a person is uprooted from their home due to conflict or persecution. 68.5 million people are now displaced, globally. For these people, winter emergency relief is an absolute necessity.
For our Winter Appeal 2018, we are delivering Winter Emergency Kits in Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Palestine and Lebanon, where displacement levels are high.
In Yemen, over 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes and over 2 million remain displaced. In Syria, 6.6 million are internally displaced. In Lebanon, there are more than 1 million refugees, and in Iraq, 2 million people are still displaced.
Our Winter Emergency Kits, which contain non-food items, such as blankets, heaters and warm winter wear like woolly hats, gloves, socks and shawls, are a lifeline. Just one Winter Emergency Kit, which costs just £100, is enough to keep a family warm all winter.
We distribute our Winter Emergency Kits to vulnerable families, refugees, widows, the elderly, people with disabilities and those without work.
Last year, we were able to provide warmth and comfort to over 50,000 people during the harsh winter months.
Millions of lives depend upon our emergency response this winter. So, please be a lifeline and donate to our Winter Appeal today.
