SYRIAN AND PALESTINIAN REFUGEES IN JORDAN
With over 10 million Syrians displaced, with no shelter, warm clothing or food, too many Syrian families have become dependent on the generosity of others to get by. Living in tents and abandoned buildings, they have very few possessions and little or no money.
The region has faced one of the harshest winters with little or no warm clothing. They are vulnerable to frostbite, hypothermia and death. Leaky roofs and no heating make winter unbearable for most and deadly for some.
We have all seen far too may pictures, read too many articles and seen too many news reports about the state of Syria’s refugees. Now is the time to act. Now is the time to care. Please help and donate what you can today.
Medical care is expensive for many in the refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. While there are clinics trying to provide reduced cost or free healthcare, they are massively under resourced and struggling to get by. Your donations can buy medical equipment, beds and life saving drugs for those in need. Many who simply cannot afford expensive medical treatment for serious medical conditions are simply left untreated. Only with the generosity of others can such people be treated.
On one of our visits to the refugee camps, we encountered a 10 year old boy from Syria who was diagnosed with cancer. His treatment costs £4000 a week. His entire family live in a make shift room with a tin roof and no windows. Without the generosity of his medical sponsor, he would not be alive and yet through all of his troubles, he smiled and laughed with us. He told us his story and shared what little food he had with us. What can you do to help?
With no money, job or possessions to call their own, refugees in Lebanon and Jordan rely on the generosity of others to ensure at least one meal a day for their families. As they are refugees, many are not allowed to work, and are solely reliant on food parcels. There are hundreds of thousands like this, and sadly, if people do not donate, they may not be able to provide theri children with a meal when they are hungry.
Will you help provide a month’s supply of basic necessities for a family in need?
£35 per family.
Syrian Refugees have had their lives turned upside down due to a catastrophic civil war causing millions to flee the country. Leaving with very few or no possessions or money, they rely on every penny they can make as a family. Millions of children are now out of school, instead doing manual labour. Children as young as five are often seen selling on the side of roads to support their family’s income. The future generation of Syrians must be given an opportunity to go to school. Will you provide a child with the opportunity they deserve?
£25 per school kit
With one of the harshest winters on record in Lebanon and Jordan last year, thousands were left with little or no warm clothing and blankets to get the through the winter months. There were many reported deaths, mainly children and the elderly whose bodies simply could not stand the cold. There are children without socks, gloves, coats or warm jumpers and blankets. We provide these and more thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
£30 for winter clothing kit
As the only heat source for thousands, gas burners are commonly used to keep warm and to cook with. Unfortunately, they require fuel and many are left with no heat when they cannot afford it. We supply and refill fuel tanks for burners so families can keep warm in the harsh winters.
