Winter Emergency Appeal

Young Syrian child in the cold

Energy and food prices are skyrocketing. More people are being pushed into poverty. This is the coldest, hardest most brutal winter yet for the world’s most vulnerable, but your donations can help. Winter kills. Leave no one behind.

Help 250,000 families survive

The UN estimates that 75 million people may have been pushed into extreme poverty since the pandemic. Families are facing a catastrophic winter with plummeting temperatures, harsh weather, and sky rocketing prices creating a perfect storm. They are struggling to feed themselves, struggling to keep warm, struggling to protect their loved ones, and struggling to live.

The most vulnerable are acutely susceptible to serious illness. Children and the elderly are especially in danger, with many unable to access healthcare. Children are missing out on an education, while working-age adults are struggling to work, pushing families further into poverty.

Last winter, your generous donations supported 234,420 people across 11 countries.

This winter, more people than ever before are in urgent need like never before – so Human Appeal is determined to reach even more individuals. This year we aim to provide winter kits to 250,000 people in 11 countries.

This includes families in war-torn countries such as Gaza, Syria as well as Afghanistan where most families do not know where their next meal is coming from. We will also be supporting families here in the UK.

Our winter emergency appeal is literally a lifeline for these families.

Please don't leave anyone behind this winter.
