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 supporting the local economy. It allows Palestine refugees to make financial decisions based on their needs.
Although winter is shorter in the Middle East, the cold is immediate and traditional heaters only offer temporary comfort. In Syria, the living conditions for Palestine refugees can be harsh, especially in the winter. Winterization assistance is vital to ensuring these refugees stay warm in the cold months.
Your gift of warmth can help to ensure Palestine refugees from Syria stay warm this winter.
“I often sing to try and forget our situation,” said Ali, a Palestine refugee in Khan Dunoun, Syria. The winter in Syria can be particularly harsh for Palestine refugees, especially since the accommodations are often poorly insulated. When UNRWA staff met Ali in 2016, he was just 13-years-old and he told them he did not mind taking off his only jacket to give to his little sister.
Your Gift of Warmth can help children, like Ali and his sister, stay warm this winter. UNRWA provides winterization support through the cash assistance programme to help ensure Palestine refugees can buy the winter supplies they need.
