Help families this winter
As temperatures drop, millions of families forced to flee face another cold winter far from home.
For people forced to flee the war in Ukraine, UNHCR is providing winter supplies and helping reinforce homes and shelters against the harsh weather.
In Afghanistan, we are delivering essential items like blankets, solar panels and winter insulation for tents to help vulnerable displaced families through the harsh winter months.
For displaced Syrians and Iraqis across the Middle East, UNHCR is on the ground working day and night providing aid and distributing life-saving supplies.
Steep rises in the cost of basic commodities like food and fuel, combined with the climate crisis and consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are forming a triple threat for refugees. Many displaced families across the world have to face winter fighting to survive.
The UNHCR is struggling this year more than ever to fund its humanitarian support to all those whose lives are at stake this winter.
We need to act now, before it’s too late.
