This an URGENT appeal to secure the most important winter necessities and medicine for Syrian displaced families in North of Syria


They were uprooted from their homes and winter wrecks their tents ❗ Let's help them endure all this.

Winter puts additional pressure on the displaced population in northern Syria, where more than a million people live in camps. They were uprooted from their homes to live in informal camps, which was thought to be temporary but they have still been there for years. Every winter, thousands of families relive the same suffering, and on average, tents of 2500 families are damaged by torrents and rains every year.

While we cover our children at night, place a kiss on their foreheads and sleep peacefully, many displaced families in the north do not find what would protect their children from the frost, and their infants in particular from the risk of death, and unfortunately, this happens every year. Your donation means that you do support and empathize with them because humanity means giving, and because feelings of fatherhood and motherhood are the same for all of us no matter who we are.

Have you experienced the feeling of giving warmth ❓ ... let's protect them

You will not be able to express the greatness and splendor of your feeling when you offer warmth for a small child. You will not forget how much humanity will be manifested in your donation for clothing a small child with frozen limbs to help him or her go to school or to be able to sleep.

Let's give them treatment too …

Thanks to hundreds of charitable people supporting us, we will provide winter medicines for those in need and give them some warmth to endure the harsh winter in camps.

What will your support provide ❓ Your generosity overcomes weakness.

✅ With your support, we can to achieve the goal of our campaign and secure winter clothes for children, which will include: underwear, a jacket, pants, a sweater, socks, a wool hat, a scarf and shoes, with a total cost of 60$ per child.

✅ We will also manage to secure the most important winter necessities for the displaced families, and they will include blankets, rugs, insulation sheets for tents at a cost of $50 per family.

✅ With your generous donation, we can secure the most requested winter medicines for our hospitals, medical centers and mobile clinics, where we hope to cover 6,000 prescriptions at a cost of $10 per prescription.

Let's spread warmth... against the spread of diseases

Any donated amount will have a great impact in distributing warmth and medicine to the most vulnerable communities. You can offer treatment, prevent diseases, and be the mercy that soothes the displaced people in their harsh winter season, which has been exacerbated by the Coronavirus pandemic and its variants.

Thank you for clothing 250 children in Ariha city!

Being a mountainous area, the temperatures are very low in Ariha city in northwest Syria.

This included warm clothes, blankets, and covers, to ensure a warmer and more comfortable winter.


We would like to express our deep gratitude for your support and appreciate the value of every donation from everyone supporting us in this campaign. Thanks to you, we can provide a warm touch to many hearts in this cold season.







Despite the efforts made, families are still suffering. We know there is more we can do, and therefore, we urge you to continue supporting our winter campaign.


We connect with you because you are an integral part of the story of giving and care. Thanks to your generous support, we are making significant progress in alleviating the suffering of affected families during the cold winter season in northern Syria.

Rugs ultimate dream for displaced people in Syria camps!

The suffering of the displaced people exacerbates every year with the advent of winter in north of Syria where displacement camps lack the basic life necessities. Your donation is the only way to fill all this shortage.



Omar family has simple rugs that cannot protect them from the winter harshness, and their five children, who have cerebral atrophy, quite suffer in such difficult circumstances in an extremely miserable tent, so the least that we can offer them is warmth.




"Every year passes better than the following one; the situation becomes worse winter after winter, and my ultimate dream is to have a "rug" so we do not freeze from the cold", he sadly explains.


This family is only one example of thousands of stories in the camps where every tent has a different pain and tragedy.


Let's secure the needs of the people residing in camps and let's support them to obtain blankets and winter clothes as these items are their ultimate dreams:

Uncle Abdul Razzaq's family needs warmth, what's the story?

Thanks to your donations, we were able to provide warmth for hundreds of families in northern Syria last winter, and as usual, with every winter, people's suffering is renewed and they need our help again.



"My children are sick because of the cold, and I do not have the money for heating materials, nor even the price of treatment for them."

Uncle Abdul Razzaq, who was displaced from his city with his family to northern Syria, says that the family suffers from many diseases because of their inability to obtain heating materials.




Cold and poverty surround Uncle Abdul Razzaq and his family, who collect some papers and burn them in order to get some warmth.

You helped warm many people, but the need continues. Watch this!

During the past winter, your donations were the reason for heating hundreds of families and children in northern Syria, who did not have any means of heating. Winter has come again, the need is growing, and the cold is still freezing the camps.


Have you imagined how 13 people live in one house that lacks the minimum necessities of life, without furniture, clothes, or anything that helps them warm their bodies in this harsh winter?




How can children's bodies be warmed when they only have worn-out clothes and have nothing to do to keep warm?

Poverty and winter increase the suffering of the family, who can no longer bear the cold anymore.



Donate any amount now and contribute to warming these small bodies and dozens of families in the camps of northern Syria. Your donation will help them overcome the cold of winter. Do not hesitate!

Your donations support displaced families in the harsh cold nights, thank you!

Your donations were the most beautiful thing in the previous winter. Thanks to your support, we were able to support the well-being of the displaced families in the camps, and provided them with winter necessities such as clothes, blankets, and insulators, as well as supporting the medical needs of hospitals. Your influence was great, especially on women, children, and the elderly.




Winter in northern Syria puts the humanity of each of us at stake. Will we stand by and watch the tragic scene every year of tents submerged in torrential rains and frozen children?



There are 10 children who died of cold in the last 3 years, let's not lose any more children. Let's support families who fear for their children from freezing.


Today you can help by donating to the Winter 2023 Campaign and spreading warmth even in the worst places:
