Refugees in Lebanon are freezing

More than 250,000  Syrian Refugees have been struggling with dangerous conditions including flooding and heavy snow when Storm Norma hit Lebanon, bringing strong winds, rain and colder temperatures across the country.

The storm has impacted at least 360 informal Syrian refugee settlements and putting 850 others at risk. Thousands of children are at serious risk and in desperate need of warm clothes, food, blankets and shelter. Temporary shelters have been damaged and some have been completely destroyed by heavy rain and strong winds. 

Now, just days after Norma, Lebanon is being hit afresh with a new storm.

There is a very real risk that people may freeze to death.

Freezing Child in Lebanon

The freezing cold is life-threatening for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. As temperatures plummet below zero, refugees are forced to seek shelter in overcrowded apartments, building sites, and garages. In high-altitude areas, displaced families are at serious risk of death from exposure to the harsh weather.

According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, 70.5% of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon live below the poverty line and 41% live in precarious and unsafe housing, including tents and improvised camps within slums.

Just one of the people we helped with your generous donations, was Muhammad. Since Muhammad lost his eyesight 8 years ago, his family have been struggling to survive. His wife Shaeen told us: ‘If someone gives us food for eating then we eat, otherwise we remain hungry.’ Because of you, we were able to provide the family with blankets, food and other essential winter items. 

Your support has meant we could help over 22,000 people around the world. Thank you!
