Winter Campaign

Winter is the toughest time of the year for many refugee and displaced families. As temperatures drop, the harsh conditions facing millions of families who were forced to flee their homes become even more challenging. Living in tents and makeshift housing, rain, snow, and wind bring a deadly threat for families with no means to stay warm or dry. For the most vulnerable refugees, such as children and the elderly, it will be a struggle to survive this winter.

As part of our Winter Appeal for this year, we have launched ‘A Winter Tale’; an awareness and fundraising campaign that aims to provide refugees with winter items they need over the upcoming months. Through this campaign, TBHF are counting on your support to deliver items such as blankets, stoves and winter clothes to those who desperately require them. Our appeal will focus on refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) in 3 countries: Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. Hosting a combined 2.5 million refugees between them, Lebanon and Jordan also rank 1st and 2nd worldwide in the number of refugees hosted per capita. In Iraq, host of over 1.4 million IDPs along with hundreds of thousands of refugees, millions are in need this winter as large-scale closures of IDP camps across the country continue. With displaced communities in all 3 countries going through exceptional circumstances and experiences this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and facing a harsh winter ahead, it is now more essential than ever to provide life-saving assistance and protect thousands of affected families.
