Syria Encounters Ruthless Winters
The brutal clashes that have been ongoing for over a decade have made survival challenging for the Syrians. As they struggle to survive, poverty and instability have skyrocketed. Winters are especially hard for them as they cannot protect themselves from winter storms and frigid temperatures.
The numbers are grim for the population of Syria!
- 4.6 million people in northwest Syria are vulnerable to fierce winter.
- 6.8 million internally displaced
- In 2023, 15.3 million people will need humanitarian assistance, an increase of 0.7 million from 2022
- Syria ranks among the 10 most food-insecure countries globally, with a staggering 12 million people are considered food insecure.
Wake Up The Warmth This Winter
Half of the population in northwest Syria depends on winter aid to fulfil their fundamental needs; most of these are women and children surviving in camps without heating, electricity, water supply or adequate sewage systems.
Families have no choice but to burn their assets, including furniture, to endure the cold. The aftermath of toxic fumes due to burning suffocates many, but the deplorable conditions provoke them to take such risks.
