Syria Winter Emergency:

Relentless Challenges with 70% of the population in need of urgent humanitarian aid

As winter descends upon Syria, the challenges facing its people are more daunting than ever. Penny Appeal's Winter Emergency campaign is dedicated to bringing warmth and hope to those enduring freezing temperatures, especially in the aftermath of powerful earthquakes that have added a layer of crisis upon an already vulnerable situation.

We are on the ground delivering life-saving aid.

Unprecedented Displacement

6.8 million Internally Displaced: The Syrian population is grappling with staggering internal displacement, with 6.8 million individuals forced to leave their homes following years of civil war and natural disasters.

70% in Need: A staggering 70% of the population is in urgent need of humanitarian aid, emphasizing the depth of the crisis.

Extreme Poverty: 90% of the population are living below the poverty line, making the winter season an even more challenging ordeal.

Winter's Unforgiving Grasp

Harsh winter conditions, marked by freezing cold winds, heavy rain, and sporadic snowfall, pose a serious threat to the well-being of many across the country.

Limited resources force many to live in man-made dwellings made of scrap, wood, and tarmac, providing little protection against the elements.

Double Crisis: Earthquakes and Winter

In February 2023, devastating earthquakes claimed thousands of lives and caused extensive destruction to homes and infrastructure, compounding the existing crisis.

In the aftermath of these earthquakes, 900,000 people find themselves in urgent need of shelter. The upcoming winter amplifies the need, as it will be the first since the earthquake struck.
