THIS WINTER GIVE TO THOSE THAT ARE WITHOUT AND HELP THOSE IN NEED BY CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS WARMTH, FOOD AND SUPPORT 

Many vulnerable people, especially children and the elderly, will not survive this winter. They need blankets, clothes and heaters, but many do not have them or have the resources to get them. Both families and individuals in need live in poverty-stricken areas around the globe as victims of internal conflicts, severe weather and life-threatening situations beyond their control.

Without your generous donations, for many, this could be their last winter; left out in the cold and without the kindness they need to make it to the new year. The UKIM Surviving Winter Appeal is utilising your charitable donations to help those less fortunate by supplying nutritious food, warming clothing and blankets, whilst also funding basics like heating, mattresses and shoes.

Our teams are working with struggling groups across some of the worst affected areas in the world, bringing hope and support to those that have been forgotten or refused the right to work, and allowing them to support their family.

Many of those we provide much-needed assistance to are refugees, who have had to flee their homes and towns due to conflict and have nothing to their name. In the winter, refugees are at greater risk. Lacking permanent shelter and often living without quality food or the basics required to survive the harsher weather, they can quickly become sick and malnourished. You can avoid this unnecessary suffering by supporting our winter refugees appeal, helping struggling families around the globe from Syria to Gaza.

Every year, generous UKIM donors step in to provide life-saving warmth and protect thousands of people. Many people need your help again to take them out of the cold.

THE WARMTH YOU GAVE THE KAFA FAMILY (LEBANON, 2018, 2019)

Syrian refugees in Lebanon struggle every day to survive. Parents have been widowed, children orphaned, families refused the right to work and constantly fearing deportation. For most, winter increases the peoples’ suffering but last year, the Kafa family were not one of them.

“We were forced to leave Syria to seek safety and security, but we still do not satisfy our basic needs to live in dignity. We thank everyone who contributed and donated to give us warmth in winter.”

Last year, your contributions helped to support our Syria winter clothes appeal, helping to bring warmth to hundreds of families that otherwise would have faced the harsh, cold winter months without assistance.

This year, your donations will go towards helping groups in India, Jammu & Kashmir, Pakistan, Gaza, Albania and the refugees of Rohingya and Syria as part of our Winter Appeal. Supporting displaced refugees in Lebanon and Bangladesh as they escape the traumas of their conflict-ridden towns and cities and those afflicted by poverty.

Donate to our Winter Appeal today and help bring hope to those struggling through the cold weather.
