Winter Emergency

Help families protect themselves this winter.

Every winter, the fight to survive increases with the bitter cold and families continue to struggle.

Early planning and preparation allows UNHCR to reach those most in need to receive their assistance on time to prepare for the harsh winter.

This winter, UNHCR aims to reach over 2.8 million Syrian refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) with winterization assistance in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. For many, this is the 11th consecutive winter in displacement.

  • $98 can help a Syrian refugee living in Egypt afford food and other essentials
  • $114 can help a Syrian refugee living in Iraq to pay for winter essentials like warm clothes and a winter jacket.
  • $228 can help provide winter cash assistance to 2 Syrian refugees living in Jordan.
  • $350 can help a Syrian refugee family living in Lebanon pay for rent, heaters, thermal blankets and warm winter clothing for their family.
