We Are Here for Those Most Vulnerable This Winter
This winter is expected to be one of the deadliest for millions around the world as communities in extreme poverty struggle to deal with the bitter weather conditions. But for the 698 million people living in extreme poverty, survival could be as simple as a winter blanket - help us help those most in need this winter.
You Were There Last Winter for people like Muhammad Khan
For 90-year-old Muhammad Khan, of Neelum Valley, Kashmir, the harsh winter months bring with them a sense of dread. Mr. Khan, who has a physical disability, lives in a mud house along with his wife and eight children - they don’t have any source of regular income and collect alms from local people to survive. The house they live in was partially damaged with huge cracks in the roof and walls. It was constantly at risk of collapse, especially during the winter when heavy rains hit the village. Muhammad shared his fears with Penny Appeal that one day the house would collapse, and the family would be buried under it.
The family were delighted to receive winter materials and shelter reinforcement from Penny Appeal. Mr Khan was very grateful to Penny Appeal and said that it had taken a big burden off his shoulders.
Thank you for your support - your donation will help families like Muhammad Khan's to survive the winter.

Countries In Need This Winter
We Are Here for Those Who Need Us RIGHT NOW!
Millions of people from all corners of the world are suffering from severe poverty and displacement. War, famine, poverty, and disaster have taken away the basic life-saving necessities that many of us take for granted.
Their lack of food, clothing, fuel, and shelter will make it extremely difficult to survive this bitter season, and with the rise in living costs and soaring inflation, this winter is expected to be one of the toughest on record for those most vulnerable.
This winter, we are here for:
- The 33 million people affected by the devastating Pakistan floods, who will feel the impacts of winter like never before.
- Afghanistan’s 3.5 million displaced individuals, many of whom are homeless.
- The 55% of Yemen’s population who are living below the poverty line due to a lack of basic resources.
- The 2.1 million Gazans suffering from hostilities, a deepening financial crisis and a surge in commodity prices.
- The 257,000 Palestinians living in Lebanese refugee camps, who are among the poorest in a country that is suffering one of the world’s worst economic crises.
It is hard to stay safe at home if you have no home - for as little as £30 you can keep a family warm, provide basic food and hygiene or even shelter this winter. Please donate today – thank you.
