In January 2022, Syria’s displaced are facing the wrath of winter. According to Al Jazeera reports, "bitter winter conditions have compounded the poverty of millions of displaced people in northwest Syria." These people are vulnerable during this time as the snowstorm has left millions of displaced Syrians at risk of freezing and has killed at least three children.
"Displaced Syrians make up about two-thirds of the 4.1 million people living there. Almost 2.2 million people live in camps and 1.7 million of those live in tented settlements in a war zone," says Al Jazeera. Many of the people living in these settlements in tents have lost or experienced significant damage to their shelters.
Together, we must provide aid to the hundreds of thousands of families who are struggling and trapped in the storm.
