Winter Appeal 2017
When a person is exposed to extreme cold, the effects can be devastating. A few of the things that can affect the body is hypothermia, frostbite and frozen cornea. Most of us are well protected when the temperature drops below zero. Unfortunately, for poor and displaced families across Lebanon, protecting themselves from the biting winds, ice cold nights and heavy snowfall of winter is just not an option, and the consequences fatal.
In Lebanon, over 1 million people will rely on tents to protect them from the ice cold wind and snow falling on refugee camps. for six consecutive years DCA _in collaboration with URDA (Union of Relief and Development Associations in Lebanon) and World Wide Organizations_ has distributed vital winter aid to Syrian refugees.
We’ve only got 1 month until we go to Refugee camps to provide blankets, sleeping bags, food and insulation for the shelters.
Please help us to to be able to do this , it would be much appreciated!
