Watch the video below to see your aid in action – Rizwan Hussain visited refugee camps in Lebanon, where we were able to provide essential items such as warm clothes, blankets and fuel thanks to your support.
Please donate now to provide family food packs, warm winter clothing and shelter and help people survive the extreme weather.
This winter, thousands of people living in abject poverty and fleeing from violence will make their beds on the cold earth, exposed to the elements, and without protection against the plummeting temperatures in the coldest months of the year.
These people desperately need your help. They are orphans, widows, elderly and refugees escaping conflict and violence. They are ill equipped and completely unprepared for the freezing onset of winter. Without the proper clothing, blankets and equipment, many will die.
At particular risk during the winter months are refugees. People on the move have less capacity to carry the proper clothing and equipment to keep them warm and fed; many are fleeing from war-zones, across borders and from destroyed villages.
As well as refugees, another problem is prevalent during winter, that is people in hard-to-reach areas. These people may live on hillsides, or on elevated plains that, at the advent of winter, become utterly inaccessible. Due to the adverse weather and already poor infrastructure delivering aid to these people is innately difficult. They cannot reach out for help, or travel safely to their local market for supplies.
Penny Appeal is working in Pakistan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Bangladesh, Yemen and here at home in the UK to provide aid that will protect families from the mortal dangers of winter exposure. Our work on the ground in these areas saves lives, and helps people to fight back against the frigid cold.
With your help, we can reach more people in hard-to-reach places, more refugees on the run from conflict or persecution and more families struggling to survive this difficult time of year.
