Sahar didn’t want to have children … not while living in a refugee camp.
But after years in the camps, she knew that if she didn’t have a child soon, she never would. Sahar and her husband finally decided to have a baby, and this will be their son’s first winter. But without help … it could be his last.
We’ve changed Sahar’s name, because she and her family are refugees from Syria.
Winter is bearing down now on the refugee camp where she lives. The icy wind seems to tear right through the thin walls of her tent. But YOU can help keep a child like Sahar’s son warm. For only $35, you will provide $189 worth of emergency supplies like warm clothing, blankets, heaters, and food to help keep a refugee alive this winter.
And right now, your gift will be DOUBLED up to $125,000 so you can help rescue twice as many people!
This special Christmas Day matching gift was extended so we can meet the full matched amount of $125,000. When this amount is met, more than 7,100 refugees will receive the lifesaving help they need this winter. Will you help make sure not a single one of them is forgotten?
Your gift will be a godsend for people like Aran.
Like Sahar, Aran is a parent trying to keep his children safe in a refugee camp. We’ve changed his name to protect him.
This won’t be Aran’s first winter caring for his six kids in the camps. However, the years don’t make the experience any easier.
Life in a refugee camp is always hard for a child, but it’s life-threatening in the winter. The freezing rain and frigid winds are relentless, and without heaters, warm blankets, or coats, Aran’s children get sick often. Since there is little access to medical care, these illnesses often go untreated and can quickly turn deadly.
“It’s very difficult. There are so many needs,” Aran said. “We really depend on your giving and support … especially during this season when it’s cold and raining.”
Today, you can help refugee parents like Sahar or Aran keep their families alive this winter.
Your $35 gift will be doubled to help provide TWO refugees with essentials like food, blankets, thick clothing, heaters, and medical care. These are all vital essentials that can be the difference between life and death for a child.
Please give today to take advantage of this matching gift and have your donation DOUBLED up to $125,000. The coldest months of the year are almost here, and a refugee is desperate for your help to stay alive.
