Margaret Lally, head of disaster management for the British Red Cross, said: “We are extremely worried about the huge numbers of people in Syria who have taken refuge in buildings or tents with no adequate heating, warm clothing or blankets. There is a real danger to people’s health, especially as temperatures approach freezing.”
To help people cope with winter weather, British Red Cross aid convoys are taking emergency bedding, tarpaulins and other aid into Syria.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is working across frontlines in Syria to help anyone affected by the crisis. We are also helping displaced Syrians in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq.
However, more funds are needed to ensure we can carry on providing vital aid in this desperate situation. Please make a donation today to help us continue to help those in need here http://www.redcross.org.uk/syriacrisis
