Global Emergency Winter Appeal 2021-2022

For many people, winter is a difficult time.

Temperatures fall well below freezing, Many refugees will face harsh conditions, and for those most vulnerable, it will be a struggle to survive the winter. Many families are facing the toughest winter of their lives this year because of displacement, poverty, conflict, or disaster. Millions of men, women and children worldwide are lacking basic warm clothing and blankets to give them some relief during the freezing winter months. 

Refugees live in makeshift shelters that are not built to protect them against freezing temperatures.

Together we can help millions of people worldwide survive this winter.

In Iraq, there are more than 3 million displaced Iraqis suffering in temporary shelters, as well as 250,000 Syrian refugees. In Lebanon and Jordan, there are over 1.6 million refugees, relying on goodwill to survive, and in Syria, some 12.2 million people need humanitarian help. Additionally, in Afghanistan, there are around 171,000 people who have been internally displaced, as well as those who have returned to Afghanistan but do not have substantial shelter.

Help them survive the winter

Today, you can help to share warmth with thousands of people facing some of the harshest conditions we’ll see all year by helping us deliver items like blankets, mattresses, winter clothes and boots, stoves and other heating devices to those who desperately need them.

Allah tells us in the Holy Qur’an that:
