Delivering Warmth During the Cold Months

WATAN Team has designed winter emergency interventions/ winter survival kits that meet the winter needs in each community, for everyone.

WATAN is distributing fuel, winter clothes, blankets, hygiene kits and stoves, repairing the damaged houses, and establishing rapid latrines for IDPs. WATAN’s priority is to save lives and restore dignity to families fighting for surviving.

WATAN has been alleviating the suffering of Syrian IDPs and vulnerable host communities since 2012. Each year, our organization designs a specific winterization program to assist those in need when they need it the most, in a timely manner.

Our team is already in the ground, providing warm clothing, food packs, blankets, fuel for heaters and essentials to those who are in extreme danger. We have assisted more than 250,000 unprotected families with life-saving winter essentials.

In Syria, 6.5 million families escaping for safety suffer without heating in temporary accommodation and refugee camps. Many of them are now pouring into a make-shift camp in subzero temperatures with no running water.
Winter kills: last year, 15 Syrian babies froze to death in camps .13 of them were under a year old. This year, the increase in the price of fuel is preventing families from coping with the cold, and many other babies, children and elderly adults’ lives are at risk. We need to send aid.
