Your donations to UNHCR's winter appeal will help refugees.

As temperatures drop, millions of families forced to flee will face another cold winter far from home. 

This coming winter will be very challenging for millions of people forced to flee their homes around the world. 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. Many refugees and displaced families will have to face winter struggling to keep warm. 

For people forced to flee the war in Ukraine, UNHCR is providing winter supplies and helping reinforce homes and shelters against the harsh weather. Millions of Ukrainians are facing winter in displacement or are living in damaged homes, with disrupted energy, heating and water supplies and lost livelihoods. 

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. 

But we cannot continue this work without your help.  

We need to act now, before it’s too late. 

Your donation can help keep refugees safe and warm this winter. #WarmTheirHearts
