When the temperature drops, the risk to the lives of millions of vulnerable people increases. After enduring another treacherous year with war, natural disaster and Covid-19, the change in weather brings a new and dangerous threat. Without adequate shelter, warm clothing, blankets, heating or food - freezing to death is a real possibility.
Having survived poverty, fought Covid-19, fled war, endured life in camps or on the streets, millions of people now have no protection against the cold winter weather.
In countries like Afghanistan, if the weather is as bad as experts are predicting this winter, millions will be threatened with acute hunger and widespread famine. Harrowing reports coming out of Afghanistan describe families being forced to sell everything including their own children to survive.
Muslim Aid’s Global Winter Appeal will ensure that those in Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Gaza, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Bosnia receive the help and support they need to survive this winter. Our response includes:
Thanks to your generous support, we were able to protect over 65,000 people across the world last winter. This year the need is greater, and we must do more to serve those in desperate need.
With your support we can help more widows, children, and the elderly. It is quite literally a race against time to deliver vital aid to those who need it most.
This winter, save lives. Give life, give warmth, give hope.
Funds raised from this emergency will go towards the global emergency appeal, supporting this emergency as well as many others across the globe.
