There's no refuge from winter

WINTER IS A TIME OF WANTING...

For our vulnerable brothers and sisters who struggle every day of the year, the coming months will be the toughest of all.

They want cover. There’s not enough
They want food. There’s not enough
They want heat. There’s none at all...
They want the basics of life to bear the bitter cold to come.

They want help. They need help. you can help us, help them!

When simply finding warmth and food is a challenge every day of the year, then the merciless cold of winter, penetrating their tents, their clothes, and their very bones, becomes a hurdle almost too much to bear, and the cause of declining health, resistance to disease, and even death.

SKT Welfare’s winter emergency response will ensure those in need receive warmth, protection and safety through the devastating winter months. We will be distributing blankets, hygiene kits, food parcels, heaters. We will also be building homes – Safe Havens – for those who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict.

Yemen

In Yemen, most of the year is dry and hot, which makes the sudden onset of harsh, freezing winters even more dangerous. Temperatures fall below freezing alongside expected heavy rains that will likely lead to flooding and yet more structural damage, pushing already strained communities to breaking point. Yemen has been facing years of conflict, and over a million people are starving. Winter is a brutal enemy for the people of Yemen, and they will fight to survive. You can help protect them.

Syria

During the winter, people in Syria face freezing temperatures, with little or no protection. Decades of conflict has led thousands of families live in makeshift shelters and slums, many still living in the rubble of their destroyed homes. This makes winter almost impossible to survive. Winter leaves people extremely vulnerable, and with many having little to no access to vital fuel for cooking and keeping warm; they are in danger of falling seriously ill.

We want to protect those in need by building Safe Havens – secure homes that offer protection and warmth. You can build a home for £1,250, and also distribute warm, winter aid that will help them stay warm and survive.

Pakistan

29.5% of all Pakistanis live below the poverty line. Everyday life is a struggle; but the freezing winter nights are life-threatening. While Pakistan is known for it’s warm summers, the winter months are brutal. Temperatures fall well below zero and parts of the country face heavy snow and rain. For those living in poverty, winter is a huge struggle and many fear they will not survive.

PALESTINE

One-third of Palestinians were living in terrible conditions even before the horrific escalation in conflict we all witnessed earlier this year.
Now, over 2 million residents of Gaza have been plunged into abject poverty. Winter in Palestine brings plummeting temperatures, heavy rains and flooding. Vulnerable families will be unable to keep out of the cold.
