UNRWA provides winterization support through cash assistance in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. Cash assistance is a dignified and cost-effective way to meet the urgent needs of vulnerable refugees in crisis while also supporting the local economy. It allows Palestine refugees to make financial decisions based on their needs.
Winter places an extra burden on the thousands of Palestine refugee families who fled Syria in search of safety in Lebanon. The living conditions for these refugees can be harsh, especially in the winter. Winterization assistance is vital to ensure that refugees stay warm during the cold months.
Your Gift of Warmth can help to ensure Palestine refugees from Syria in Lebanon stay warm this winter.
Hadi Ma’moun lives with five members of his family in a single room. “Winter is really hard here,” says Hadi’s father. Ma’moun is a Palestine refugee from Syria living in the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon. “We need assistance, fuel, blankets, clothes and jackets. I don’t want my children to get sick because of the cold.”
“We use our blankets and clothes to keep warm. But it is not enough,” explains Ma’moun.
Your Gift of Warmth can help families, like Hadi’s, stay warm this winter. UNRWA provides winterization support through our cash assistance programme to help ensure Palestine refugees can buy the winter supplies they need.
