THE STORY:

"It was very cold, and we were very wet...and so were all our belongings."—Refugee boy

(A $114 donation can help a family in a place such as Syria survive the harsh winter.)

The number of children, women, and men who are displaced throughout the world has grown to the highest ever recorded. Nearly 60 million people have been forced to flee war, natural disaster, or persecution—and the number continues to rise.

The brutal civil war in Syria—now in its fifth year—is a leading cause of displacement. Every day, families are fleeing Syria to reach neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon, or to seek safety in Europe.

When people flee their homes, they often leave with little more than the clothes on their backs. As winter sets in, protection from the elements can mean the difference between life and death.

Last winter, the IRC distributed lifesaving emergency kits—including protective sheeting, warm blankets, mattresses, woolen socks, and insulated boots and clothing—to some 175,000 Syrian refugees uprooted by war.

Your donation today can help Syrian refugees stay safe this winter—and make a lifesaving difference for displaced people in dozens of countries around the world.

Help us provide emergency health care, clean water, sanitation, education, and more to millions of uprooted families who are struggling to survive and recover in South Sudan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and many other troubled and hard-to-reach places.
