Already struggling for the necessities of life, from food and water to shelter and clothing, winter brings its own ordeals. Snow storms have hit the Middle East, leaving refugees facing the prospect of battling for survival in freezing temperatures with few resources.
Makeshift tents have collapsed under the weight of the snow. They are called home by countless thousands who once led working or middle class lives with careers, homes and amenities comparable to those in the West. Now their living conditions mean cramming into tents with other families, with few belongings and little or no money to buy food, fuel or clothing.
As part of our Syrian Refugees Winter Crisis Appeal, Islamic Help is planning to distribute vital aid to 1,500 refugee families, representing 10,000 individuals, in Akkar and the Beka Valley in Lebanon.
