What It’s Like to Spend Winter in Makeshift Tents

Help Provide Warmth to Syrian Refugees

Millions of people will face life-threatening situations this winter. Freezing temperatures mean that the lives of babies, children and impoverished families are at serious risk. According to the UN, 13 million people are in desperate need as winter sets in.

Last year, temperatures in the refugee camps bordering Syria fell below zero and many refugees had nothing more than makeshift tents to shelter them.

This winter, more than 3 million refugees and another 6.5 million internally displaced people will need humanitarian aid. As temperatures begin to fall and the nights start to draw in, they are worried about how they will cope this winter.
